Here's the first card I created for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge 11. I wasn't completely satisfied with the colors of the cupcake, so I created another card.
I was reminded of using mizuhiki cord by browsing MaryJo McGraw's blog. I like this technique, but it's better-suited for paper mosaics...just like MaryJo McGraw does.
