This was a labor of love folks... it took way more work to keep this card flat than it would have to pile on the lumpy bumpy embellishments. Don't get me wrong... I adore embellishments in all shapes and sizes. However the post office doesn't seem to have the same affinity for them that I do.... so this is why I decided it was time to try a flat card again. Got say I loved how it turned out. :)
The jumping off point for this card was the Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake challenge (see the picture above)... this is one of the bestest inspirational challenges in my personal opinion... Your inspiration can come from any portion of the picture. I used the colors and the swirls on the cupcakes to get myself off on the right foot. The image is a stamp from FSAS from the Mouserkin series. She looks so thoughtful and serene to me. :) The sentiment is from PMS and the swirl stamped in green is from Autumn Leaves. Copics were the coloring medium, a paint dauber added the shimmer to the scene and Stickles added the sparkle.
Wishing you a Terrific Tuesday! Smiles ~ Brandi
