Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #23

Happy Fourth of July everyone!! So what are your plans? We are going to go over to my mother's house and light some fireworks. Josh loves watching them and the hubby likes to light them. I always get paranoid with Josh and basically glue him to my hip the whole time. But he has such a great time that I end up enjoying it too. Anywho today I have a special 4th of July Taylored Expression Cupcake card! I used my new Just Johanna's space cupcake stamp. I know it's spaced themed but I thought it also worked for the 4th. I colored my image in with my Copics and added some liquid pearl to the cupcake icing. The stars are nesties die cuts. I embellished them with some rhinestones. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's "Limitless Labels". (I love that set!) Patterned paper is Basic Grey's "Recess" collection. Lastly, I added some SU striped ribbon and finished it off with some paper piercing. Well that's all for me today but if you want to play along in the 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!? :)
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 TECC23 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 21 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!
