Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #55

It's Friday! Yippee! :D Well...I would be a little happier if I didn't have to work today but thankfully I will be able to come home around noon. Anyway, welcome to another Cupcake Sketch Challenge! This week Taylor really had me stumped! She came up with a very difficult (in my opinion) sketch but I actually had a ton of fun with this card! I actually felt myself grow as a stamper! Hehe! The part I was the most stumped on was the little part in between the two strips. I decided that instead of a new strip, I was just going to add some ribbon there! I really love the look that it created! For the image I decided to use this adorable stamp from the SASI set called "Love is Sweet". I had not used little Cupid yet and figured it was time! :D I paired him up with my BasicGrey Bittersweet dp too! The circles were cut with my nestabilities and I stamped Cupid in black StazOn. I then colored him in with my SU! markers. I wanted to add a little bling so I dabbed on some stickles to his cherry and hearts. I also used my new Coffee Shimmerz to cover the bottom of him. The final touch was to add the row of crystals under the sentiment! The colors of card stock used were Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip, and Very Vanilla.

Well, that's it for me today! I might possibly have another card to share later but I am not sure. 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. :D Taylor has chosen the fabulous Jodi Collins! I absolutely adore her AND her personality! She is truly amazing!
