I used the Sketch Saturday #324 and Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #275 to show off the new Verve goodies!  The music-themed papers are a great fit for the Catered Crop:  Music Expressions Recipe Swap!


This new stamp set, Cupcakes, is so FUN!  The cupcake builder images and a fantastic array of sentiments and word play make this set a MUST-HAVE...and one can never have too many sequins, especially Verve's Signature Sequin Mix!

The Echo Park Fine & Dandy by Lori Whitlock has the perfect colors and patterns to create birthday cards, and I added a bit of The Twinery Metallic Gold & Natural Baker's Twine to accent the sweet cupcake!


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
