Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #29


Good morning everyone! Sorry for the late post this morning. I slept in...AGAIN! I guess my body is just taking advantage of these last two days of summer before school starts up again. Plus I didn't sleep well last night. Anyway, today is Friday which means it's time for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge! This week Taylor sent us a sketch that really was a challenge for me! I just sat there staring at it for the longest time until I finally decided I wanted to use my new butterfly punch. I have to admit that this card came together really quickly because there was hardly any stamping involved. I added the stickles and the dew drops as a final thought but I think it adds so much more! I loved this color combination too and am so glad I pulled it together. Are you as convinced that you have to have these In Colors as I am??? Well...I wasn't even convinced until AFTER I bought them but now I am so glad I did! Alright, well head over to Taylor's blog to check out her fabulous card as well as this week's featured cupcake sampler! This week Taylor has chosen Noelle from The Scrap Pirate and you are not going to want to miss her stuff! It is just fantastic!

Oh, I'm glad I looked at your card before starting Taylor's challenge. I seriously was going to use my Martha Stewart butterfly punch in a almost identical manner. Great card! Great minds think alike!

This is gorgeous, Steph. The funny thing is I saw Taylor's sketch this morning before work and I was thinking of what to put on my circles and thought of butterflies and then i saw yours =)
