Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #35 October 1, 2008

Here is my card that I made for Taylor’s cupcake challenge.  You don’t have to use cupcakes to participate in the challenges:)  I decided to go Christmas with this one as I have to get started here soon making holiday cards.

I really like this one!  The simplicity of the Kraft cardstock really makes the Riding Hood Red stand out.  And there are so many possibilities with the center stamped image.

Check out what the rest of the cupcake crew has created with this sketch:

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

Last Fridays featured cupcake sampler was Frances blogging at Stamp Owl’s Studio…make sure you check out her creation…she does amazing work!
