Posting 2 Days in a Row......WOW I am on a Roll!!

And I even have my laundry done!! I am trying my follow the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge the best that I can! But it is proving to be a little harder than I thought to create 9 different cards! Since I don't think that I will be able to create 7 more cards before tomorrow night for the BIG drawing, I would still like to challenge myself to make a card for each of the sketch's.

This sketch that I followed today came from Jami Sibley. Check out the card that she created for this sketch, it is super cute! I REALLY like the way this sketch is layed out and LOVE the way my card turned out! Here is the sketch:

Here is my card using Close to my Heart's Free Spirit papers and matching My Reflections Stickease. For my sentiment I used a past Stamp of the Month called Say it in Style. I really love this stamp set for it's versitility in sentiments!!! I am keeping my fingers crossed that CTMH will bring the set back to purchase in the Idea Books......

This card was actually one of the easiest yet! When I purchase CTMH's paper packs, I almost always purchase the My Reflections Stickease that match. The problem is I don't always use the stickease on my projects. So, I thought I would actually use them for this challenge. Kind of like a double challenge for me today! LOL

The flourish that I used is one of the stickers that come with the matching stickease assortment. I stuck the flourish onto a piece of Cocoa CS and cut around the flourish leaving a small border. The piece with the stitching is also a sticker, cut to size and distressed with Cocoa ink. The Pewter Designer Brads at the bottom of the card are new to the Spring Idea Book and are super cool!!

All supplies are CTMH:
Stamp: Say it in Style
Paper: Free Spirit
Embellishments: Free Spirit My Stickease, Pewter Designer Brads, Cocoa Ribbon
Other non-ctmh: Nestabilities Circles, SU! scalloped punch

I hope that you have found inspiration in my card today! Get those stickers out and put them on your cards! I know I will be using more!!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope to see you back again!
