SOS235: 3...2...1!

it's a recipe challenge at shopping our stash this week, i love those, don't you? it's kind of a modified version, though, for maximum flexibility. we're calling it "3...2...1" because we want to see (sorry if this is obvious!) three of something, plus two of something, plus one of something. does that make sense? let me clarify by showing my own card, which has three flowers, two patterned papers and one hand-painted cuppycake:

patterned paper: dcwv, recollections; glossy white cardstock: paper accents; florals: prima, making memories; brads: recollections, mme; cupcake painted with artist's loft watercolors on strathmore paper, outlined with faber-castell pitt artist pen in xs nib; ink for edges: colorbox; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, sewing machine

i'm jumping in just under the wire on the fusion 2nd anniversary challenge (happy birthday, you guys!) because --as always-- they've got a fab sketch and a cool inspo pic, and i was able to use both, so this was the quickest card of the year, lol!

need more inspiration? b/c the SOS design team is rockin' it... but then... they always do, darlings!


  1. This card makes me happy! LOVE the bright colors and patterns in the paper, and that cupcake looks good enough to eat!

  2. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh that cupcake!!! Love the pretty colours, a lovely card with a cherry on top :)

  3. What a lovely card, you really got the recipe down and I love the hand-colored cupcake, it pops against the pretty patterned papers! I've missed stopping by your blog, so much pretty eye candy!
