Card Concept Challenge # 84-

 Welcome back my stampy friends to the 
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. 
It was so nice spending time with family and friends.

Now I 'm ready to get my creative juices flowing again!
This beautiful inspiration photo was perfect for that!

I was inspired by the cupcakes and all of the pink color to create this Mixed Media card.

My card is a TOTAL CASE of a set of cards that I saw on a Nichol Spohr video. She is so talented and just love watching her YouTube Channel!!! The video of her card is HERE.

I created my card using some darling cupcakes from PAPER SWEETIES!
The Birthday was created with an Echo Park die.
I had so much fun creating this card!
My card would be considered a Mixed Media style card, because of the different mediums that I used. I used ink and embossing paste for the background. I used heat embossing on the cupcakes. This card has lots of texture!

Mixed Media

2 or more mediums (inks, embossing powder, pencils, watercolors, markers, etc.)
May include dimensionals-embossing paste, gesso, fabric, papers, etc.
May include heated elements-encaustic was, embossing
Can be a variety of styles-CAS, Graphic, Shabby Chic, Grunge
Basically, use of 2 or more mediums qualifies as Mixed Media

All of the styles are explained HERE.

Please feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles. 

I hope you will join us for our new challenge!
We love seeing all of your beautiful creations!
