How Sweet of You


I can't get enough of Verve's latest release! Today's card features a trio of paper-pieced cupcakes from Carpe Cupcake and a sentiment from Happy Hello. The layout is a fun one that sort of fell into place from scraps on my table. I did have a big "uh-oh" moment when I was adding the black zigzag stitching ... didn't plan on hitting that blue and yellow ribbon roadblock. Stitch over it? Skip that part and continue below? I decided not to decide {grin}.

Wow, this is amazing!!! You've totally rocked that cupcake set AND that Thrift Shop paper! Of course your layout is devine and I really like how the black stitching stops! It's supposed to be that way, right :) ?

The is gorgeous!! I've always wondered what to do with smaller cupcake images, never thought to stack a few so it takes up more space. Love it!
