Taylor’s Cupcake Challenge March 30, 2008

You all know the fantabulous Taylor Vanbruggen right?  This is another woman I had the honor of meeting out at CHA in February.  Not only is she an amazing artist….girl should be a model. 

Every Friday Taylor has a cupcake challenge, with some really cool sketches, that you can participate in.  I had some time this weekend to give challenge #9 a try….and I LOVE how  my card turned out:

    I love this card. Your take on Taylor’s Cupcake Challenge is really great. I love the rounding of certain corners to make it all hold together but still feel like separate little pictures. And the frogs are definitely cute! TFS!
