Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #22 & My New Stamps!


ETA: I'm going to try and get a better picture a little later. The lighting is not good yet.

Yay! Leanne and I got home from our conference yesterday evening and when I went to get the mail I discovered that some of my new stamps had arrived! :D My order from Verve Visual and Lizzie Anne Designs had both come so I couldn't wait to ink them up! Now, Taylor's sketch this week requires an awning so I wanted to create a pretty card. It was hard to choose which stamps to use but I finally decided on my new Fluttering By set along with a sentiment from the Uplifting Phrases set (which happened to be on sale)! I also had to use my new dp that I got from Hobby Lobby this afternoon. I just love the colors in it! To add a little bit of color and dimension I included some fun buttons that I had and covered the butterflies with glitter! I absolutely loved this sketch and had so much fun playing with my new stuff! Make sure that you swing by Taylor's blog so that you can play along. Check out her gorgeous card along with this week's fabulous guest designer, Sharon Harnist!

You should also check out the other girls' cards as well! You won't want to miss them!

Well, I am excited that I was able to get the card posted on time today! I was so bummed last week when I couldn't find my camera. Friday just isn't the same without the Cupcake Challenge! I hope you enjoy this week's sketch as much as I did! The idea of an awning on a card is fantastic (in my opinion). Enjoy the rest of your morning. I will be back later with another card!
