Taylor's Cupcake Challenge

This is the sketch for the Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge #53. And here's my card. The hogs and kisses stamp is by Inkadinkado and is probably 20-22 years old. I found the stamp among some seldom used stamps and remembered how much fun we had with this stamp oh so many years ago. I wish I knew then (about stamping) what I know now. I used a corner rounder on the black card base and pink pirouette and white layers. The little black dots were added because I just couldn't leave the white layer plain. The patterned paper is from Bella Rose dp series. And the black gingham ribbon was found in my ribbon stash. I'm really working on trying to get down to 1 drawer for my non-SU ribbons. I think I need to give some away!






I stamped the image with classic black ink on pink pirouette paper, then used a 2" circle punch to cut it out. I trimmed around the top of the hogs and layered it on a black scallop. I used Jill's new creative memories heart punch and used the inside heart for to add to the mix. Can you see all the little kisses on the hogs. Wouldn't it be cute if the kisses were in red. Maybe next time.
Thanks to Taylor for another great sketch challenge.
