Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #30


Welcome back ladies! :D Today is Friday so you know what that means! It's time for another one of Taylor's terrific challenges! This week Taylor has a fantastic sketch for us and it is probably one of my favorites yet! I sat down to make my card with an idea in my head and my card turned out exactly how I imagined it! Don't you love it when that happens? I know I do! Anyway, check out this fantastic sketch! Head over to Taylor's blog to see her gorgeous card along with this week's Featured Cupcake Sampler, Lynn Put! Lynn has a fantastic blog too!

I used a lot of my new stuff on this card, all of it being SU! I pulled out my Upsy Daisy set and embossed the image with white embossing powder. The dp is from the new Urban Garden dsp and it is absolutely gorgeous! I also added some of the new yummy kiwi kiss satin ribbon! Isn't it just fantastic? It feels fantastic too! I really like how my card turned out. The only issue I have with it is the fact that my embossing didn't turn out so well. Either way I think it has a cool effect. I know Nick liked it A LOT so it must be pretty decent! :D Also, don't forget that right now the Upsy Daisy set is 15% off too! Check out this promotion for more details!
