Mojo 379 - Birthday blessings

Hi everyone! I decided to give this weeks Mojo Monday a try and here are the results.

All stamps are from Verve. I colored the cupcake with Copic's and now I want a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting! I'm arguing that the yellow around the bottom of the cupcake is the paper.

Designer paper is from Authentique. I used a few more of the pony beads that I melted down. The white/ivory ones kind of have a yellow tinge to it, so they worked well on the yellow designer paper. The black ones are a little bit smaller and work well in the top right hand corner. I found when melting the beads that you can adjust the size by the amount of time spent in the oven. The only this I hate, is trying to get them glued on. I prefer the self adhesive ones, still.

Bow is tied with the Bow Easy. I manipulated the bow ends so that they would lay flat on top of the strip using clear glue squares.

OK, off to clean up now. Thanks for stopping by!

I like the cupcake - and since it is midafternoon - I think it is just in time for a sweet snack!!! But I don't have any. I saw a video on how to melt down the pony beads but have not seen anyone who used them - very nice.

What a cute card Laurie! I love your interpretation of the sketch, and you used a great combination of colors with the designer papers.
