Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #33!


Good morning all! I am only an hour late with this post...hehe. Sorry! I didn't fall asleep last night until close to 2 and decided I needed to sleep in this morning! Actually, I had every intention of waking up to post on time...but...obviously it didn't happen! :) Either way, here it is!

I wasn't so sure of this card at first but it is really starting to grow on me. I wanted to use these adorable stacked cupcakes from the new Taylored Expressions set "Sweet Celebrations" and the oval looked so bare on the sides so I added some much neglected prima flowers! I colored in the petals so they matched the paper a little better and gave them some stripes for dimension. I then added some dew drops for a little shine. I watercolored the cupcakes using my watercolor paper, SU! markers, and blender pens. I then cut out the image and popped it up on dimensionals. The corners have been paper pierced for a little added touch too. Other than that, I think this card is pretty self-explanatory!

Make sure you stop by Taylor's blog to see her card and today's Featured Cupcake Sampler's card! Today's Featured Cupcake Sampler is the fabulous Lori Craig! She has so much talent so you will not want to miss her card OR her blog!

Well, that's it for now! As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I plan on getting a lot of stamp time in today! I finally finished up some swaps that I have been working on so I have some me time now! :D My hubby is home today though because it is so cold and rainy here that they have decided work will be close to impossible (they can't stucco when it is too cold or rainy) so I get to spend some QT with him too. I will hopefully have a post up tomorrow as well. I take my test tomorrow! Boo! Haha! Ok, take care ladies!
