Cupcake for a Friend

Earlier this week Taylor contacted me and asked me if I wanted to be the Featured Cupcake Sampler on her blog. I was completely honored to have even been asked and of course I had to say yes. When saw the sketch I knew exactly what set I wanted to use and what I wanted to do with it.

Again I’m using one of my absolute favorite color combinations of Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Kiwi Kiss.  I started with a Baja Breeze card base and layered Not Quite Navy and Urban Garden designer series paper.  I then split my image from the mat so that the strips of Kiwi Kiss go between the two layers.  I attached a button with linen thread to all 3 of the strips.  The main elephant image is from Happy Heart Day and the cupcake is from the ABC Images.  I used it to go over the heart that the elephant normally holds on his trunk.  The cupcake has been paper pieced and as you can see in my preview photo the icing is a separate layer as well. 

Come and play along with Taylor’s sketch!  You can find #51 here

I also want to add that I mentioned that the Country Living Kit was retired.  I had completely forgotten about the half price on the kit for the Inventory Blowout Sale.  I used the paper on the Valentine Wish Box that is seen here.  I am also working on replacing some of my photos.  Fotki, my image hosting site did some upgrades and since then some of my photos appear with a red X.  I will fix those over the next few days.
