Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #26


Good morning ladies! Can you believe that it is Friday already? I certainly can't! This week flew by so fast! Well, to start your morning off, check out Taylor's fantastic sketch! :D I absolutely loved it and I know you will too!

Since the layout of this card is so fun I knew it had to have some fun colors so I used LOTS of them! I pulled out my polka dot dp from My Mind's Eye and used the colors in it. I love how perfect the SU! colors match it too! I also pulled out my hilarious Paper Pretties stamp set and went to work coloring in this cute little chick! I know I have felt that way before and I am sure most of you have too! :D Now, the only thing on this card I would fix would be the flat image. I wish now that I would have cut out the chick and popped him up so that it wouldn't look so flat. I tried to fix it by adding a shadow around the outside of him but I am not sure I like that either. I don't know, what do you think?

Make sure that you head over to Taylor's blog to check out the sketch, her card, as well as this week's featured stamper's card! For this week Taylor picked the fabulous Denise aka: peanutbee and I was so excited! I have admired Denise's work for a while now and she definitely deserved it because her card was fantastic! :D Make sure you check out her blog too! She is very talented!
