Pinch Me!

But whatever you do, don't wake me! I'm so excited to be the Featured Cupcake Sampler this week over at Taylored Expressions! Taylor emailed me shortly after last week's challenge where I posted this card and asked if I would be interested. Ummm, Yes! I love Taylor's challenges and was so honored to be selected to play with the next sketch ... and what a sketch! Don't you love it?!

I chose Basic Grey's Eva patterned paper for my background and then added several coordinating colors of Core'dinations card stock to make the panels. I punched 1" circles in the panels before adhering them to the card. The "cupcakes" were made with the Magnolia Cowberry Muffin stamp and colored with Copic Markers. I also added pink Stickles to jazz them up a touch. You can see the sparkle really well by clicking the photo to enlarge it. You'll find the complete details below.

If you've wandered in here via Taylored Expressions, welcome! It's great to have you here. I hope you'll make my blog a regular stop. Rumor has it that Taylor is releasing new stamps today. Don't miss out!

Thanks again Taylor! It was a blast!

Card stock: Core'dinations
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, Eva
Stamps: Magnolia, Papertrey Ink
Ink: SU Cranberry Crisp
Accessories: Papertrey Ink twill, ribbon, Stickles, dimensionals, Glue Dots
