CIC214 - Taylored Expressions

It's time for a new Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  This week we're giving you the option to be inspired by the cupcake or to use the colors as your challenge.  

I'm very excited to tell you that this week we are being sponsored by Taylored Expressions.   I just love all the cupcake stamps.  The first time I laid eyes on one of the Halloween cuppies I just had to have it.  Since then I've picked up several more cuppies and a good amount of stamps sets that are not cupcakes, but the cupcakes will always tickle my fancy.

Taylor is giving the stamp set "Sweet Friends" to the winner of this week's challenge.  It's chuck full of images and sentiments.  She also let the design team pick an image to use.  How great is that!  Very great!  The hardest thing about this was deciding which image to use.  Stop over at the Cupcake Inspirations challenge blog to see what the rest of the sweeties made with their choices.  They are a talented bunch of ladies, you're be glad you visited.  If you have a couple minutes to spare time leave them some love.   You know that we all adore reading your comments.

The image I chose is called "Sweet Bliss".  I think it looks great with the cupcake taking the place of the letter "o".  I colored the cupcake with the colors of the cupcake in the inspiration photo but I didn't add all the little dots.  I was afraid that they would just look like a hot mess and didn't want to take the chance.  

When I made the die cut of the heart doily I saved some of the cut out hearts to use for decorations on the long panel.  It was really great to have a matching brad.
