Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #18


It's Friday and I am so excited to share with you Taylor's newest Cupcake Challenge. I really love this sketch because it allows for a fun and clean card. I combined it with a very special cupcake stamp. This image is the new, yet to be released, mini from My Favorite Things. I got permission from Kim to post it a little early just this once. (FYI she is having a huge blog candy giveaway so make sure to entry!) This set along with tons of other new sets will be available online June 4th. Previews will begin on Monday so keep your eyes open. This release is the most exciting one yet!! Anywho back to the challenge. I wanted to go with a clean and crisp French Bakery feel. Light pastels came to mind so I went with the new PTI Lavender card stock along with SU Orchid and Pretty in Pink. The perfect match to the card stock was some Memory Box "Sprout" patterned paper. It is so soft and sweet! To complete the card I added a bloom from Mike's and PTI satin ribbon in Spring Moss. So if you want to participate in Taylor's challenge here are all the details you need to know.

1.You're not required to use cupcakes for the challenge, but if you got 'em why not use 'em!? :)
2.You're welcome to create something other than a card, just stick as closely to the sketch as possible and you'll be eligible for the prize drawing!
3.If you're uploading to Splitcoast use keyword TECC18 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 17 or link your creation on this post.
4.Each week, I plan to have a Featured Cupcake Sampler! The cutest and most creative sample from the previous week will receive the featured cupcake sampler honors. The winner will receive the sketch ahead of time in order to create a card that will be featured along with a link to your blog on Cupcake Friday!
5.Featured Cupcake Sampler this week is Carol from Happiness Blooms!
