TECC#53



Today I wanted to try Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #53. It is a first time for me doing a challenge from her blog and this sketch just really drew me in to give it a whirl. I think I could get hooked doing these each week (especially since I always need these kind of cards in my stash!).

Sweetest Blessings from Gina K. has the cutest cupcake image and fit perfectly with Taylor's challenge. I used the colors Pink Pirouette and Sage Shadow and some older Basic Grey paper that matched very nicely. The top of the cupcake was colored using a pink Copic and then covered with Cotton Candy stickles...created a great sparkle. The bottom of the cupcake is paper pieced using the same dp as the bottom panel. The heart brads were a Target $ spot find and matched up nicely (and most of all fit with the sketch :o)).

Right now pre-game Superbowl coverage is on so the family is pretty much centered around the TV.
I can stamp and enjoy time together with the family :o)
Have a great Sunday!
