Cupcake Anyone?

Good Monday morning! How did Monday get here so fast? Today I have a card to share using one of The Cat's Pajamas new release stamps " Coffee, Tea, or Meow?" I like that some of the newer stamps are a bit bigger...this one was perfect for paper piecing. I combined The Cat's Pajama's Tuesday Supply Challenge "Mad for Plaid" with Mercy's sketch "MTSC91"

The basic card came together quickly, but I had a bit of difficulty embellishing this one. I had first planned to used crystals for Sprinkle's eyes and necklace, but they were too big.... Then the flower I wanted to embellish it with wasn't right either.... Next I thought I would use one of my cup/saucer charms.... Oops, I guess I used all of those up for a swap! I settled on some ribbon and a simple bow. Maybe that's all it needs; there is plenty going on with the plaid and the scallops....

Have you decided which cupcake you would like? I call the one with the cherry on top!

I think the ribbon embellishes it perfectly. The combo of dsp you used is fantastic and you are the paper piecing master for sure. Love the plaid table cloth!
