TECC53 With a There She Goes Sneak Peek!
Good morning everyone! First of all I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who played in last week's challenges! It was so fun looking at all of your creations! I have posted the winner farther down in this post! I hope you are all having a wonderful morning so far! Today has been so much better than yesterday and I'm technically only 3 hours into my morning! I am full of hope that the rest of the day will just continue to be better! :) Anyway, today is Friday (yippee!) so that means it's time for another one of Taylor's fabulous Cupcake Challenges! This week's sketch was fabulous! I seriously don't know how she comes up with all of these sketches! I used a soon-to-be released set from There She Goes called "Flowers of Happiness". I can't tell you how incredibly beautiful the stamps in this set are! I think this is probably my new favorite set from There She Goes and that is saying a lot! :D Jessica just really outdid herself with this one! I stamped the flower twice on watercolor paper, water colored them with my SU! markers and blender pen, cut them out, and layered them with dimensionals. I just love the 3D effect that this layered flower has! The designer paper I used is from My Mind's Eye and I paired it with Very Vanilla and Rose Red card stock! I tried to keep this card fairly simple and elegant so I added some Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon as well as some Vanilla pearls. Overall, I am really pleased with how this card turned out! It was one that turned out just how I had envisioned it! :)
ETA: I forgot to post my random winner from last week's sketch challenge! The winner was post #79 who was ariellehemp with this card! Congratulations Arielle!
