Happy Birthday Taylor!!


Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!! Today is a VERY special day...it's Taylor's Birthday! Woo Hoo!!!

Quite a few of us have gotten together to celebrate Taylor's Birthday with a Birthday Blog Hop!

For my card for my sweet friend Taylor, I began with her Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge from yesterday, TESC117!

When creating a card for Taylor, I just KNEW it had to have a cupcake! Taylor is the cupcake Queen!!! For my card, I used one of my favorite Taylored Expressions sets, For The Love Of Cupcakes!!

I stamped the stand and cupcake in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock. I then stamped the cupcake again on Choice Buttercream, and then a third time on some Fly A Kite paper from October Afternoon. I colored all of the images with Copic Markers, paper pieced the cupcake liner with the patterned paper, cut it out and popped it up on Foam Tape. I added some Adirondeck Espresso Pearls to the top of the cupcake...YUMMY!

All of the patterned paper on my card is from Fly A Kite by October Afternoon, and I sewed each layer on my sewing machine. I created the scallop border on the bottom with the Apron Lace Punch by Fiskars.

The sentiment, "Wishing you a birthday filled with cupcakes!" is also from For The Love Of Cupcakes, and I just created a little tab for it as per the sketch!
