Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #35 - Happy Bday Card



Good Morning All,

What a crazy night it has been - we have had major rain - major wind - and the lightening was so bright that I couldn't sleep - so I thought I would finish up my card for Taylor's Cupcake Friday Challenge - what a great sketch to play with! This card is made for my friend Mikaila whose birthday is today! Happy Birthday Kali!!!! Miss You!
First things first - I  don't think this is a card that I will be mailing (Kali - that means you have to come home again soon! and stay longer than you did last time!) because it's wee bit on the 3D side. I love the fun DP that Taylor has with this kit and I couldn't really pick one - so I thought it would be fun to do both and fold a corner over.... I was going to flatten it out a bit - but then changed my mind and left it a bit upstanding :) 
I love Taylor's stamps - and couldn't wait to use this sweet little cupcake ready to blow out her cake. I colored the stamped image and then paper pieced the cupcake liner, painted the tongue pink, added a larger brad that I stickled with orange glitter and then glazed the cupcake and cake. The green cardstock, brads, DP & ribbon is from Taylor's kit. The magenta background cardstock was partially embossed with flowers. I went over the sentiment in white get paint.
I sometimes will read on people's blog that the card that they made was just like the idea that they had in their head - and I am always amazed - because that rarely happens around here .... I kinda had a different vision for the card - but kinda ended up liking how it turned out...
 Anyhoo.... it's time to start the day - the wee ones are up - and I thought I would make them some waffles and fruit - -- and by "make" - I mean, "warm up" :)

Wow - so Monday has begun!! Well - hope all of you are having a wonderful start to your week!
Thanks for coming over for a visit!!!
Ciao for now!
Sankari :)

Hy Sankari... I returned to blogs and scrap. I broke my finger and after I was traveling to Ushuaia, in Argentina, near Antartida. Very cold and snow I am very curious to visit your new cards. I loved the card to alzeimer´s day. I will try the same. Now I am making bookbindind with fabrics. I am loving this. How are you and your kids? Kisses, Manuela
