I just discovered a new blog called Taylored Expressions that have some fab challenges and inspiration to make beautiful cards. Anyway Taylor is celebrating a year of cupcake challenges!!! As part of her celebration she asked her cupcake crew to design sketches. If you participate in them all and upload them to Splitcoast by Thursday Jan 29 by 8pm PST you will have the chance to win a $75 gift certificate to her store!!!!!!! The cupcake sketches are fab and if time allows I plan on participating in all of them!!!! My first card is made using Taylors sketch. I love this sketch and I can see myself using it quite a bit. I coloured this cute House Mouse image, using my Tim Holtz distress inks and then cut it out with my scalloped circle nestabilities (the sketch has the oval nestabilities, and as I have only just bought my first set of nestabilities yesterday the circle scallop is all I have, so had to make do). I then cut another 2 layers in burgundy and pink. I stitched the DP to the burgundy and then added a ribbon that I stamped "Happy Birthday" onto with a Michaels dollar stamp. I used the Martha Stewart doily punch along the bottom, added Prima blossoms and brads.
Thanks for Looking.
