...Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #47


This is my submissions for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #47 from Friday. I started with a Baja Breeze Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with Chocolate Chip Cardstock. The Whisper White Cardstock panel was pierced around the edges with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, then three Silver Brads were added to the bottom right-hand corner. I used a 1/4" Circle Punch to punch out some Baja Breeze Cardstock circles to go under the brads, then matted those with Chocolate Chip Cardstock circles that were punched out with a 3/8" Circle Punch (I also used the Mat Pack and Paper Piercer for proper placement of the brads). The sentiment was from the Love & Happiness Rub Ons pack, and it was placed just above the brads. The completed panel was attached to the card base using Dimensionals.
The patterned paper was from the Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper pack, and was matted with Baja Breeze Cardstock. A piece of 5/8" Light Turquoise Ribbon was added around the panel, then the completed panel was attached to the base using SNAIL Adhesive. The focal panel mats were cut out and embossed using Spellbinder's Classic Circle Nestabilities, then attached over the ribbon panel using Dimensionals. The image was from the Pink Poison (soon to be the Greeting Farm) stamp set called "McSplendid Farm". The adorable horse was stamped in Graphite Black Brilliance Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun, then colored with Copics Sketch Markers. I then cut out the image and popped it off of the round panel using Dimensionals.
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope to see you again tomorrow with another card using this same set...so you will not want to miss it! Until then...

This is one of the cutest and most playful cards I have ever seen. I just love the little horse image and you made him look so precious. He looks like he's about to prance off the card. Can he come to my house and play? LOL! Great job girlfriend!
