Muse Challenge # 119

I didn't know if I was going to have a chance to enter the Muse Challenge this week but suddenly came up with an idea last night!

This is the Muse inspiration card for this weeks challenge by Joan Bardee. I love the simpleness of the design and that sweet pink cake. I don't actually have any cake stamps but came across something that's different but still sweet:

Yes, that is a pineapple. I'm not sure how many pink and gold pineapples are in the world but I would love one for my birthday!!

I stamped the pineapple body on white CS and heat embossed the leaves in gold. I fussy cut them both and adhered to a small panel of white CS. I then heat embossed the sentiment in gold too. I remembered I had some gold triangle patterned vellum tucked away (I thought the triangles were kind of like the pineapple spikes), so added a piece of that to the card front. The panel was then popped up on some foam tape.

The pineapple stamp is from Reverse Confetti 'Pineapples a Plenty'. The sentiment is also Reverse Confetti 'Fancy Word Co-ordinates' and the vellum is from My Minds Eye.

I have three other challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes)

Simply Create Too Challenge # 86 (Keep it Simple)

Seize the Birthday 

I have one more card to post and then need to make a card due for tomorrow. Such a busy week with cards, so thank goodness Mr Mojo has come back from his hiatus. Let's hope he can keep up with the pace and not need another holiday soon!!

Take care
