Mojo Cupcake!!!

Keep calm and have a Cupcake! Who doesn't like cupcakes? Check this yummy cupcake out.. I got one of these for my son last year and I had to take a picture of it...

It just makes me wanna smile! No onto my card for this weeks MoJo Monday Sketch and The Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog..

Sweet Stampin' had an inspiration challenge and I've never really done one of these before so I gave it a shot.. You use the photo for inspiration.

I went with a Cupcake,so dessert and then I used colors that looked similar to the icing on the cookies..

I've had a pack of the Nook and Pantry paper from Basic Grey forever and never really used it.. and the stamp set is Basic Grey as well.. I think it called cakes. I started with a Chocolate Chip base and then I added papers from the 6x6 pack and my Satin Ribbon is retired Stampin' Up! I stamped my cupcakes onto a piece of Whisper White and inked it up with Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose Craft Ink and then colored it in with So Saffron and a dab of Chocolate Chip.

I added some Dazzling Diamonds to my icing with a 2-Way glue pen and sponged around the edge of my focal piece and my sentiment. I stitched along the sides with some yellow colored embroidery floss. This was a hard card to make, took me about 4 hours. Things just weren't working out right and I didn't like the way some elements looked so tricky!
