Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 20 and a Birthday Girl!

It is Taylor's sketch challenge friday again. A very special sketch challenge it is. The host (Taylor) is having her birthday and us girls decided we would bring the goodies! So here is the sketch for you to see and make sure to link back in on Taylor's blog HERE and play along with this birthday fun!
Happy Birthday to you TAYLOR!

I get to bring the BALLOONS! A party isn't complete without them! I know Taylor is a chocolate lover so I wanted to make my card very "rich and brown". This cutie hedgehog is half of the image "Friends don't mind" by Cornish Heritage Farms. He is part of the Friendly Kritters line. I did the velvet flowers up the middle for the second panel in the sketch.

Here is the close up shot of this little guy bringing the balloons to the party, notice a couple of the strings dangling? Guess he got a little close to a couple of his balloons! I colored him with copic markers and paper pieced the balloons.

Our cupcake sampler this week is non other than the fabulous Laurie! I have had the pleasure of serving on the DD with Laurie....she is such a sweetie! See her sample here on her blog Just Give Me Stamps.

Come and see what the rest of the girls brought to the "party":
Stephanie Hargis: Steph's Stampin' Stuff
Vicki Chrisman: This Art that makes me Happy
Jami Sibley: More is More
Mary Jo Albright: Beauty Lies Within
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
Ana Wohlfahrt: Ink A Stamp
