Verve Sneak Peek ~ Day 3

Good morning!!! Today we are talking about cupcakes....they're not just for breakfast anymore...hehe.... Today is Day 3 of the Anni-Verve-sary Release and we are looking at Carpe Cupcake and Birthday Bash 
I literally laughed out loud when I saw this sentiment and then the title of the set :)  I love witty puns and am always teaching my students ones like this whenever they come up in class.  And who wouldn't want to seize (and eat) the cupcake? Now many of you may know that I'm don't colour much on my cards.  BUT....I've been known to paper piece, the perfect alternative to colouring :)   I stamped the cupcake twice, once on brown patterned paper and once on pink glitter paper.  Then I popped everything up on foam adhesive and added sprinkles (pearls) for fun :)  With this next card, I inked a sentiment from Birthday Bash with Versamark to create a border around the card.  I wanted a cute & fun look, so I opted for some fun polka dots and a hot pink ribbon...I like the way it kind of clashes against the red patterned paper.  The cake has been paper pieced and I added pearls as icing dots this time (the lines of icing that hopefully stick to the knife so you can eat with your finger!! YUM!!)
 Still got a sweet tooth? The Divas have more sneak peeks so head over to their blogs or check out the post on the Verve blog.  Oh, and be sure to leave comments along the way for a chance to win some prizes :)

OK, I'm drooling on the keyboard now LOL!!!! Seriously scrummy card, Moe! I love them both - and your paper piecing looks great! Ooooh and the little sprinkles look totally edible too - think I might just lick my guy's computer screen to check.....nope, definitely NOT edible LOL!
Hugs,
