Bling-a-licious MOJO Monday!!!

Happy Monday, everyone!

I am so excited to be participating in my VERY FIRST Mojo Monday Challenge issued by Julee Tilman of Verve Stamps!

For this challenge, I followed her sketch to create the layers for this card, carefully choosing some really fun pink prints to reflect, well...ME! LOL!

I had SUCH a great time with this challenge I got a bit carried away with the bling but ya know, I personally feel that you can't have too much bling in MOST cases ;)

I used Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush cardstocks, and chose two designer papers from the Papertrey "Pink Patterns" collection. Following the sketch, I placed the papers in line with Julee's sketch, adding Sweet Blush ribbon and also a few rhinestones to balance out the plainer pink area within the card.

I made it my own by adding a scalloped circle to showcase the ADORABLE cupcake image from Verve Stamps' Cupcake of my favorite sets! Then, it was time to "frost" the cupcake :) Using Liquid Applique and Stickles, I frosted the cupcake. I also "blinged out" the little floral lacing underneath by adding small, delicate rhinestones to each flower. I also added a bit of bling to the flowers surrounding the cupcake and then "colored" the flowers in using Stickles.

I had so much fun using this sketch! As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope it looks good enough to eat!

I love that cupcake. I must confess that I had to order it and am waiting for it to arrive. It looks just scrumptious paired with PTI
