It's Friday, Featuring.....

This Friday I am featuring one of my regular sketch locations, Taylored Expressions! I am featuring her blog this week for a couple of reasons. First, Taylor just released a couple new stamp sets that are adorable! You have to check them out. 2nd, Taylored Expressions is also celebrating a Birthday! And there are prizes to be had so I just HAD to share with you!!!

All you have to do to be eligible to win is to play along with Taylor's Cupcake Challenge and create a card based on her sketch of the week. See the TE blog for all the details!

Now on to my card:



This card was fun but a little challenging! In order to fit everything on this card, I had to make a pretty big card - 5 1/2 x 7 - not huge but bigger than I'm used to! And I originally stamped the cupcakes, added the pieces of DP between them and then stitched to make "divider" lines and blah! It looked awful! So, cupcakes were stamped again on separate squares and added to the card front with foam tape. Much better! Stamps are from Stampendous, colored a bit with Copics, DP is from My Mind's Eye and ribbon is from CTMH.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to have a creative weekend!

Love how you used the other spaces as accent pieces as well.

It's a good life!

This is fabulous, how you shook things up a bit by using the smaller square embellishments is a great idea! BR-T
