Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #21 June 20, 2008

Hmmmmm, I think the words that come to mind are funky, groovy, 8-tracks, and throw the peace symbol in there as well.  Just a little before my time, but I think the card I made for Taylor’s challenge is more of a flashback friday creation…lol  It’s a busy one, but I wanted to make a bright & fun card.  Remember, you don’t have to use cupcake images to participate in the challenges.


Doesn’t that PP used for the wallpaper shout out 60’s?  And the ribbon…I had to use this oh so soft and funky May Arts ribbon.  I had a lot of fun creating this card.  Now, if only I could find the opportunity to plop myself in a chair and gobble down some ice cream.
