Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #49 - Happy 4th Birthday card


Good Morning Everyone,
I have not played with Taylor's Friday cupcake challenge in what feels like ages!! Here is her sketch #49 and I totally loved it as soon as I saw it on Friday - and had a ton of ideas... but when I went to make a card last night - my wee ones have been a bit congested and had a hard time sleeping - so I couldn't make a card till this morning. Here is the card I squeezed out in a half an hour in between getting the kids up, dressed and fed :)

This is a little birthday card for one of my son's sweet playmates who is turning 4 in less than 2 weeks. Loved Taylor's sketch with thisythe four squares for this - it was perfect!! All the papers and cardstock are from Taylor's Birthday Girl Key Ingredient's Kit. The card is cut to 5"x5" and the squares are 2"x2" . I made the number 4 by folding a strip of paper and then stamping the "birthday" sentiment on the leg of the number 4. The stamp is part of Taylor's Sweet Celebration kit.


Check out her new releases here! Hope this post finds you all in good health and happiness! How are you all doing on your New Year's resolution... 3 of mine were forgotten by lunchtime on January 1st... the rest are going okay :) Come and check out this week's movie challenge on Cinema Saturday - we are doingthe movie Mama Mia from which to draw inspriation to create a card, layout, anything - so come over and check it out!!

Wishing you all a fantastic start to your week!!!
Thank you so much for coming over for a visit :)
Ciao for now,
Sankari :)
