Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #24


Yay it's Friday! Does anyone have any special plans for this weekend? I hope to get some serious stamping done. This week has been mojoless for me but nothing works better to get me out of the slump than a Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge! Seriously I was not overjoyed about anything I made this week until this card. I do adore the cards I posted this week but those were made a while ago so they don't count. I decided to play around with my new Rachelle Anne Miller stamps. I think Milo and Lily are super sweet. I also went with a light pastel palette again. I have really been feeling the light hues lately. I colored everything in with my Copics and added some stickles in the flower centers. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's "Limitless Labels". The pearls, brads, and flowers are from the SU Pretties Kit. The ribbon is May Arts and the patterned paper is Memory Box "Sprout" collection.
BTW Taylor is having a huge sale over at her website that will go on until Monday. Don't miss out on some awesome goodies!!

So if you want to play along 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 TECC24 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 24 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 Terri Todd from Paper, Scissors, Stamp...ROCK!
