Just a Little Sweet

This sketch is from Taylor VanBruggen's weekly Cupcake Challenge. Her blog is awesome and is full of "sweet" stuff that is guaranteed to inspire. But be careful! You may find yourself suddenly craving a treat from your favorite bakery (Apple Annie's in Wilmington).

On her blog are links to some other great samples using this sketch. I think there are some scrapbook pages made using this layout...so if you're a also a scrapbook addict, check out the links.

I made up my mind to participate in this week's challenge. I decided to use a tiny little cupcake stamp (even tho cupcake images are not a requirement in the challenge) and I made a tiny (3x3) little card. I used SU chocolate chip and pink pirouette paper. The polka dot "ribbon" is a strip of paper from Bella Rose DSP. The cupcake is an incentive stamp from SU and actually has a candle on top and the words "make a wish" under it. So I used the chocolate chip marker to color just the cupcake and then used the fine tip of the marker to finish the line on top where the candle had been. The pink icing is done with stampin pastels. Baja Breeze flower fusion are under the cut out cupcake. "Sweet" is from Everyday Flexible Phrases which is a retiring set and is only available until January 18th. There was a container of glitter on my table, so I couldn't resist adding just a sprinkle.
I enjoyed the challenge and hope to try one again.
