A Year of Cupcake Challenges!!

Guess what today is?? Today is the official one-year anniversary of Taylor's Cupcake Challenges!! Happy Anniversary to Taylor and the Cupcake Crew!!

To celebrate, EACH member of the Cupcake Crew has designed a sketch for today...that's a whole lot of sketches in one day for you to see!! Oh, and as if that wasn't exciting enough, there will also be PRIZES! Be sure to check out Taylor's blog, the anniversary celebration headquarters, for all of the sketch challenges as well as an awesome grand prize for one random winner who participates in ALL 9 sketch challenges. We hope you'll help us celebrate this yummy occasion!

Jackie Pedro is one of the members of the Cupcake Crew and I was asked to be on her team of sketch samplers (I'm so excited!) along with Tammy Hershberger, Sharon Harnist, and Jenn Diercks!! You can check out the sketch on Jackie's blog and find out about the PRIZE you can win by participating.

Here's my card featuring Jackie's sketch. I used stamps from the SASI Love is Sweet set, papers and embellishments from the Valentine Key Ingredients, and Taylor's new Choice White CS. The card measures 5.25" square. The matted main image and matted sentiment are both up on Dimensionals. The circle on the inside of the card is also up on Dimensionals.



I realize now that I'm looking at the pictures...I should have been more careful with the direction of the striped paper. I have the stripes on the inside going a different direction than the ones on the front of the card. It probably would have looked better if the stripes followed the same direction. Oops, sorry about that....hope it doesn't make you dizzy, LOL!

I love dove dark chocolate and pink roses, because to me both are delicate. The dove smoothly melts away and the roses are so soft to the touch and fragrance is wonderful. You capture that delicacy in your card!
