Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #20

Happy Friday everyone!! Today is a very special Taylored Expressions Cupcake challenge. If you guys didn't know yesterday was Taylor's 26th birthday. So the cupcake girls decided to throw her a virtual Birthday Party!! Whoot Whoot!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAYLOR!!! I am in charge of bringing the virtual cocktails. I searched high and low for a great picture of some girlie drinks. These looked the tastiest to me. YUMMO I had to add some recipes too :) Drink up Taylor! Hope you had a FABULOUS Birthday.
Mojito Classic (My Fav)
Mango Margarita

I also made her this birthday card using this weeks Cupcake challenge. I didn't have another cupcake stamp that scream Happy Birthday so I went with this cute little mouse from Whipper Snapper. I combined him with some equally yummy patterned paper called SEI "Loveland". I colored him in with my Copics and popped out the present with 3D glue dots. I added some rhinestones and stickles for added bling. Card stock is Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss, White, and SU Chocolate Chip. The ribbon is also PTI. To complete the card I added some SU brads to all corners. That's all for today! If you want to play along in the Taylored cupcake challenge here are all the details.
1.You're not required to use cupcakes for the challenge, but if you got 'em why not use 'em!? :)
