Cupcake Anniversary Challenge!

So, what better way to celebrate a fun milestone than with a celebration?! Taylor is celebrating a year of cupcake sketches today and she has some fun things planned. She has asked all her Weekly Cupcake Samplers to design a sketch for the celebration. This is the sketch I designed and I hope you'll play along with the challenge. I will be selecting one random winner from among all the participants in my challenge to win a $10 dollar gift certificate from Taylored Expressions!
All you have to do is make a creation using my sketch (a card or scrapbooking layout) and post your creation on Splitcoast using the keyword TECC52AW. The deadline will be Thursday, January 29th. So, make sure to get your creations done and uploaded before then :) I will do the drawing on Thursday evening and then the winner will be announced on Friday, January 30th. Also, don't forget to stop Taylor's blog, the anniversary celebration headquarters, and check out the awesome GRAND prize for one lucky participant who enters all 9 sketch challenges! You can find all 9 sketches on these blogs...

Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Jackie Pedro: The Scalloped Edge
Sherrie Siemens: Card Creme
Vicki Chrisman: This Art that makes me Happy
Stephanie Hargis: Steph's Stampin' Stuff

We were also assigned some fabulously talented past Featured Stampers to sample our sketch! How cool is that?! So, hop on over and check out their creations for more inspiration!

Kathie Bailey: Just an Inkling
Tori Wild: Wild Sprinkles
Ashley Marcu: Cherry Hill Designs
Jennifer Meyer: Jennifer's Sweet Designs

So, now for some details on this card I used the newly released SASI "Love is Sweet" set along with the Valentine's Day Key Ingredients available at Taylored Expressions. I colored everything in with my Copics. I really like how it turned out :)

Here are more details on how to join the challenge.
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 TECC52AW.
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 Christine Okken from Christine Creations.
