Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #68

Good Morning! :) I'm back with another card today. But first off, please excuse the horrible pic I took this morning before heading to work. I will try and get a better one when I get home. Anywho, back to this post! :)

My SIL's birthday is this Friday and we are going out RA Sushi for dinner. I'm so not into Sushi, but I will go because she is my SIL, and it will still be lots of fun getting together with everyone! :) I needed to make her a card, so I decided to work on Taylor's Cupcake Challenge last night. It was so quick and easy that I had this card done in no time, I mean once I figured out what papers and stamp to use! Which sometimes can be the most difficult part of the process! LOL! :)

I've had these My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow papers for a while now and decided it was time to finally start using them. These papers were so fun to work with and my favorite are those large polka dots in the background! :) I colored Underwatergoddess-Abella with with my Copics and used my Clear Copic Spica Glitter Pen to add some shimmer to her scales. It looks so shimmery IRL. I also cut out another star and pop dotted it adding some Star Dust Stickles for some more shimmer! I added some stitching, a sentiment and a Prima and called it done! :)

Well that's it for me today. I hope to be back tomorrow with something new, but I can't promise. Two day's in a row is pretty good for me these days! LOL!!! :)

Take care and have a great day! ~Jenn
