My daughter made muffins today while I was working on some of the anniversary release cards so the cupcake image was calling my name LOL!  A few fun papers, cupcakes coloured to match with some Stickles on the icing for a bit of glam (sorry, doesn't show up in the picture!), a double sentiment to balance the card, and a few silver half pearls and twine to finish things off. 


Want to win some shiny new Verve? Today's prize is a BIG one. We'll be picking a random commenter on one of the hop spots below to win our ENTIRE new release!

As I began reading your post, I took a moment to admire Julee's beautiful graphic at the top for this release. It is so pretty. Then I saw your card.....the very same gorgeous colors!!! It looks like you planned it that way!! Love your card with the fun angled panels and the use of the double sentiment.
