You Brighten My Day

I didn't get to stamp until late today. Laundry was calling, but I'm happy to say it's almost finished! :) This is for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #50. I used the A Year of Sweets 2 set from Taylored Expressions along with A Year of Sweet Sentiments. The patterned paper is from the Blossoms & Butterflies Stack by DCWV. I used 3 different size circle punches to punch out the portions of the image I wanted for each circle. I colored the images using Copic markers and matted them with Basic Black cardstock. For a finishing touch, I added faux stitching around the main panel.

I'm hoping to get a little more stamping time today, but we'll see how that goes. Maybe once all of the laundry is put away! :) Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- A Year of Sweets 2, A Year of Sweet Sentiments (Taylored Expressions); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Paper- Blossoms & Butterflies Stack (DCWV), Basic Black (SU); Accessories- Copic markers, paper piercer, 1 3/8", 1 1/4", 1" circle punches (SU), grosgrain ribbon; Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
