Sweet Cupcake Friend

So where have I been, huh?....kid stuff...LOTS of kid stuff! There was a preschool field trip on Tuesday to "Pumpkinland" where we all went on a hayride and the kids learned about pumpkins and ghourds. That same day they sent home "homework"....an Elmo doll, who we had to take along with us on errands, have him help us with chores around the house such as feeding the dog and cat, and we took him to the playground for some pictures...all of this had to be journaled with the pictures and handed in at the next class (for some reason I thought I'd have more time when my daughter was in preschool...ha!, LOL!). Then yesterday my mom and I took my daughter and niece to one of those inflatable play places. So anyway, that's where I've been....now onto my card...

Taylor has a reeeeeally fun sketch today, and awesome samples from her cupcake crew and the featured cupcake sampler....you can check them out HERE on her blog. I made a card using her Sweet Celebration set, along with embellishments (DP, Prism paper, and brads) from her Halloween Key Ingredients.

I stamped the cupcake in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white CS, colored the face with a YR00 Powder Pink Copic marker, and colored the tassle on the hat with an RV34 Dark Pink Copic. I stamped the image a second time onto the plain green Prism paper, cut out the hat and cup, paper pieced them over the base image, and then added some Liquid Pearls over the polka dots. I outlined the entire image with a W1 Warm Gray Copic. The green organdy ribbon was layered over top of some black satin ribbon. The black panel behind the main image is up on dimensionals, and so is the punched sentiment. The inside of the card has some more of the green/white polka-dotted paper along the bottom edge.
