Seize the Cupcake.... in a Moxie Fab Vervey Kinda Way!!

Long title!! This week's Tuesday Trigger, in the Moxie Fab World, is bright green polka dot cupcake holders with an orange and yellow background!! Talking bright here!! When I saw the inspiration pic I immediately thought of the Verve set "Carpe Cupcake" {which I adore and haven't used... it is possible to have stamps you adore and haven't used... KWIM!!} Perfect and perfect sentiment. Stamped the cupcakes in memento tuxedo black onto white using masking. Since I didn't have any green with white polka dot dp... made my own. Used Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds with Versamark on green paper and heat embossed with white. Three vertical layers of those bright colors with a little divine twine from The Cats Pajamas and a two button/twine combo. Liquid applique for the frosting {prob' not used much anymore but, I liked the effect}.

Here's the inspiration

Here's my card.... Seize the Cupcake!!

How fun is that!!

Hope you're having a great day!! Mine's better than yesterday... high winds... old tree.... no entrance to our part of the neighborhood {cul de sac both sides}... our tree.... only took 4 people an hour and a half and 2 chainsaws.... but, we had the entrance open!! And... my sweet DH gets a new chainsaw... how happy is he!!??
