Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #55

Here I am - barely squeaking in another challenge before the deadline. This one is for this week's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge. I think my friend Susan is rubbing off on me - I can't seem to make a card without a mouse or a bunny on it anymore. :)

The background papers are cardstock that I ran through my Big Kick with a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders (D'Vine Swirls, Swiss Dots and Floral Fantasy). I used a brayer to roll a slightly darker shade of ink over the paper to highlight the raised areas.

Stamps: Party Mouse (House Mouse Designs), Celebrate (Michael's $1 clear stamp)
Ink: StazOn (Jet Black); Colorbox Chalk Ink (Olive Pastel, Wisteria, Rouge)
Paper: Pink, Green and Purple cardstock (Archiver's)
Embellishments: Cuttlebug embossing folders (D'Vine Swirls, Swiss Dots, Floral Fantasy), Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle dies, Prima flower, brad, ribbon
Techniques: Prisma colored pencil blended with Gamsol, paper piercing

Jydy, this is VERY sweet!! I love your use of the embossing folders. I would not have thought to use just that small snippet of the Floral Fantasy folder. Really beautiful! I also like how your paper piercing flows with the polka dots : ). Delightful image!! all in all it does make you want to just Celebrate!! TYFS Patti
