TECC52 - A Year of Cupcakes

Today is a very special Cupcake Friday! Taylor VanBruggen is celebrating a year of Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenges!. Week after week, Taylor has thrown down a fabulous sketch as inspiration for her Cupcake Crew and anyone else that wants to play along. I was so very pleased and honored that Taylor invited me to play along with this very special celebration.

Each of the ladies on the Weekly Cupcake Crew has designed their own sketch for the celebration. The sketch I'm using today was created by Sherrie Siemens and what a great sketch it is. Be sure to check out the sketch on Sherrie's Blog and find out about the prize you can win by participating!

Don't forget to check out Taylor's blog, the anniversary celebration headquarters, for all of the sketch challenges as well as an awesome grand prize for one random winner who participates in ALL 9 sketch challenges! We hope you'll help us celebrate this yummy occasion!

What fun images to use on such a special Cupcake Friday, than Taylor's Own, Love is Sweet. I stamped my images onto some of the coordinating paper from the Bittersweet collection and mounted it onto a background piece also from the Bittersweet collect. The deep etched rubber makes for a fantastic image every time!

I created my circle of hearts using my Sizzix Heart Border die using yet another piece from Bittersweet paper collection. I just love how all the papers unit in color and hue.

Be sure to check out the other Cupcake Sampler's using Sherrie's awesome sketch:

Lynn I just love popping by to see what your next creation will be and I'm never disapointed.
you have a lovely way of drawing the colours out of the papers.
The patterned heart punch circle on this onegives a softness to the card.
Simply awesome.
