Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #20!!!

I can't believe it is already Friday! This week has just FLOWN by! This week Taylor has posted a terrific sketch (as always) but us girls decided to secretly switch it up a bit. We are throwing Taylor a virtual birthday party because it was her birthday yesterday! And I am bringing the streamers! Happy Birthday a day late girl! :D I made this card especially for you! Because I knew that this card was going to be in the hands of the fabulous Taylor, I worked extra hard on it. I really had to think about how I wanted to make it look. I am pretty pleased with the end results, I was not planning on it being near as bright as it is, but I think it still looks good. I wish I would have used more brown but I wasn't sure how. Anyway, this is what you get girl! :D SURPRISE! Actually, I already mailed it but I am sure it hasn't reached her yet. Our mail system tends to be very slow. I am not sure if you can tell but I put stickles on the candle flames and I used crystal effects on the icing to give it a shiny look. This was also the first time that I had ever used a piece of hardware on a card besides a brad or eyelet. I really like the effect that it has too! Be sure to stop by Taylor's blog and wish her a late Happy Birthday if you forgot to yesterday. If you would like to join in on the party your are more than welcome to! While your there you should check out her card as well as this week's guest designer who is the very talented Laurie Schmidlin. You can view more of her work on her blog: Just Give Me Stamps.
