Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #18

Hey there, Happy Monday!!! :D The movie was so much fun and we had a great time!!! I loved everything about it, so it's a must if you are a fan to go see it!!! So I decided I would try out another challenge, and even though I probably don't have time to take on other challenges since I can't keep up with the ones I normally do, I just couldn't resist Taylor's Cupcake Challenges anymore!!!! :D She always has some great sketches and she has an awesome blog, so go check it out!!! :D So here is my card for the challenge. I used Partygirlabella, isn't she just adorable?!?!? This card was a labor of love as I paper pieced everything!!! I know, "What was I thinking?" But I wanted to use the new Prima B&T paper that I bought and I didn't really have any markers or ink that matched so paper piecing was my only option! I love this paper and the colors are fab!!! :D I stamped everything in Brilliance Graphite Black ink and cut out all the balloons, her outfit, party hat and even the delicious cupcake...YUM!!! :D

Stamps: Partygirlabella (Stamping Bella) & From Me To You (CTMH) Paper: Prima Breathe Collection & White Daisy CS (CTMH) Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Sunny Yellow Marker (CTMH) Accents: Clear Buttons (CTMH), Foam Squares




Have A Fabulous Day!!! :D
