Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #51
Good morning! It's Friday and I am sadly working. Boo. Anyway, the good news is that it is time for another Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge! Woohoo! :) The other good news is that I should be done with work around noon. Yippee!!! Ok, anyway, make sure you get all the sketch deets from Taylor's blog. We would love to have you play along! This week's sketch was a fun and easy one! I actually was able to put this card together in less than a half hour! That's super fast for me! :) I have been wanting to play with my new "Ed the Moose" stamp by Kim Hughes and this sketch fit him perfectly! I paired him up with the "Happy Camper" sentiment that is in Kim Hughes' "Bear Hugs" set too. As far as the rest of the card is concerned, I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder and then ran my Kiwi Kiss background through my Big Shot with my Swiss Dots cb folder. I also used my Hawaii Papaya dsp for the strips and added some vintage brads to the end. There is no ribbon on this card either which is a HUGE shocker! :D I actually really do like how this card turned out. It is fairly simple, which is good. I do, however, feel like something is missing. Any suggestions?
Well, that's it for me today! I hope that you enjoy today's sketch. Make sure you stop by Taylor's blog to see her card. You also will want to check out this week's Featured Sampler. Taylor has chosen Jenn Diercks to help us out this week. Let's just say that I am one of Jenn's biggest blog stalkers. :D
