Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #39 (2 Cards)

This is the MOST yummy-licious challenge blog you will ever find! Taylored Expressions is ALL about the CUPCAKES!!!... and who doesn't like cupcakes???

I finally found me a cupcake stamp and had to try Taylor's challenge :) Actually - I had to try this sketch TWICE!!! 2 totally different looking cards, but obviously, the same sketch.

Here's the sketch she made:
... WARNING: You may need to sit back and possibly put on a pair of sunglasses... this card is a tad on the bright and colorful side, LOL...

...and here's my yummy cupcake card:
I told you it was colorful!!! LOL!!!

Here's the info: SIS "Colored Circles Scarf" DP from the Window Shopping Collection, misc. CS (which I tore! - my lil' sis will be so proud of me!), imaginisce Happy Collection cupcake stamp - colored in with my NEW Souffle Sakura pens, CTMH "Floral Delights" sentiment (from my RAK from TONI!), and Michaels $1 ribbon. I FORGOT! Making Memories staples, lol, I ran out of glue dots and had no way to add the ribbon, sooo I stapled them on! LOL!!!

The Souffle pens were really cool to color with - they are very bright colors and add a bit of texture and shine... you can tell by looking at the top cupcake in the pic :)

OK - here's my 2nd card:

Isn't it pretty?!?

Here's a closer look at the flowers - it's really easy and fun to paint these beauties in...

Info: SU! Pretties Kit flowers colored w/SU!'s 'Close to Cocoa' ink w/a aqua painter, SU! 'Short & Sweet' sentiment, Making Memories brads, SIS DP from The Pemberley Collection, misc. CS and unknown ribbon.

I know, I know - I ALWAYS say "unknown ribbon" - I always unravel what I have and toss it into my bin and then forget were it came from! Bad, bad, bad!!!

LOL, I don't have much SU! product - it's all the same stuff that I got for my one and only SU! class that I had with Ellie back in the beginning of September :) I really know how to hoard my stuff, LOL!

I hope you all like my cards ;) Please let me know what you think and which you like best! THNX!!!
