Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #31 August 29, 2008

Here is another friday challenge for you to try.  Check out Taylored Expressions for todays sketch.

This is a really easy card to create.  I actually had it completed in under 30 minutes which is not like me.  I was proud of myself.  Minimum, it usually takes me 3 hours to brainstorm and create a card. 

What a pretty color combination.  And the silhouettes….simple, easy, and beautiful.  This stamp set is called Upsy Daisy and there is a stampin’ up! promo right now…and this set is 15% off till Sept. 30th. 

Check out what the rest of the cupcake crew made today with this sketch:

Ana Wohlfahrt, Jami Sibley, Lynn Mercurio, Monika Davis, Sherrie Siemens, Stephanie Hargis, and Vicki Chrisman.

Todays featured cupcake sampler is Nancy Morgan.

That is it for today.  Enjoy your weekend
