Viva la Verve!

Good morning! I'm back with the second Viva la Verve challenge for the month of July. We're continuing our walk through bathrooms, and Amber provided some great inspiration pictures. I was going to go with room number two, but the third one eventually grabbed my attention. I think it was the color combo that snagged me.

I really wanted to use some of this blue and yellow dp from October Afternoon. Are you getting tired of seeing this stuff yet? lol Well, the third inspiration photo presented the perfect opportunity!

I paper pieced the cupcake wrapper, colored the frosting with my copics, and added just the littlest hint of sparkle with some glitter along the edges of the frosting. I officially love this sketch, Amber. I'm definitely going to pull this one out again and again. I also used an oldy moldly MFT stamp, It's A Cupcake Kind of Day. I love the larger size of these cupcakes, and, sadly, don't use these lovely stamps enough. And is anyone else out there absolutely stoked that Stampin' Up brought back Baja Breeze as a permanent color?! I have been hoarding my little pack for two years now, and now I feel so free! Prepare to see lots of Baja Breeze in the future. :)

Well, that's it for today. Have a lovely Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
