Happy Birthday Taylor!

Taylor...you sweet thing....I am "celebrating you" today! The best way I thought of to celebrate our friendship was to join the two things together we like the most!

I love coffee, you love cupcakes. I will note one inconsistency....the cupcake and the coffee cup should be the same height...lol!
You are such a sweet friend and I really hope you enjoy your day "hoppin" around to see what your stamping friends have done...

Wishing you a lot of fun (and of course cupcakes) on your birthday. Enjoy!

Ok, for the papercrafting part of this close up I wanted to show you how pretty it is when you use your airbrush system to highlight images. Here I colored and shaded my cupcake and coffee first then I put my BG10 in my airbrush system and sprayed my white cardstock. I was careful to make my edges slighly darker leaving the space around my image the lightest...therefore highlighting it. I know it is something that is very subtle but I wanted to show you it was actually intentional....
Here's the whole card. I mimicked the blossom shape on my cosmo cricket patterned paper by using the blossom die from spellbinders to cut the shapes for my image. I used that same blossom die for the little felt flower in the corner as well.
Here are all the card deets:
Stamps:
The Cafe (Shady Tree Studio), Script Essential Expressions (Mona Lisa Moments) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Rich Cocoa Memento (Tsukineko)
