My First Taylor Challenge

The lovely Taylor over at Taylored Expressions does a weekly cupcake challenge every Friday.  And who doesn't love cupcakes?  This is the first time I got a chance to do her challenge and I enjoyed her sketch a lot.  It was out of the box for me, mostly because I love making my normal 4.25 by 5.5 card.

Now, Taylor does encourage you to use cupcakes.  Mostly because they are just happy and we love them.  But you can do whatever you want.  I did a cake this time.  Something about this sketch just asked for this MFT You Take the Cake image I recently got in a swap.

I just love pink and brown.  One of these days I'm gonna learn how to make cakes so I can make myself a nice and pretty pink and brown cake.  Mmmmm...cake!  But I am currently trying to lose weight so I will live vicariously through my cards.  
Here's the basic recipe:
Stamps: MFT You take the cake
Paper: pink, white, medium pink CS, Making Memories pink background DP, American Crafts MEtropolitan Underground DP
Ink: stazon Jet Black
Accessories: ribbon, button, felt flower, markers

And don't forget my giveaway!  It ends on Saturday!  Enter HERE.
