Peace, Love & Cupcakes!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday again!! Here is a card I made for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge, TECC76!!

Now, I know it's only July...well, August really :) but I have decided to TRY and make a Christmas card EVERY Friday using Taylor's sketches as my starting point! I hope I can do it...I think I will be VERY happy in December if I can pull this off!!

For my card, I stamped this super sweet cuppie from Season's Sweetings from Taylored Expressions in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I stamped it once more so I could color and cut out the tree base so that it was "out of the box...er circle".

I framed cuppie with a Circle Nestie and added paper piercing around the edge. The papers are from the Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday Collection, and I used Saturday and Sunday! I really LOVE this paper!! I used Prism cardstock on this card in Rose Medium...LOVE this paper too!

The sentiment, "peace, love & cupcakes" is also from Season's Sweetings from Taylored Expressions!!

I finished off my card with some more piercing and a double ribbon of Very Vanilla Taffeta from SU! and Apple Satin ribbon from Taylored Expressions!! I used Foam Tape, also from Taylored Expressions, to pop up all my layers!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!
