TECC52: Taylored Expressions Anniversary Sketches & Play for a Chance to Win BIG!!



Happy Friday & Happy Anniversary to Cupcake Friday! Taylor is celebrating the one year anniversary of her Taylored Expression Cupcake Challenge! I've enjoyed them so much, Taylor is just a treat to work with! She asked each of the ladies on the Weekly Cupcake Crew to design a sketch for the celebration. This is the sketch I designed and I hope you'll all play along with the challenge! I used the love letter writing cuppie from Love is Sweet on my card today and paired him up with my new Bittersweet paper by Basic Grey (pink & brown, doesn't get any better than that!) and because I love using designer paper so much, my sketch features a lot of it!


I will be selecting one random winner from among all the participants in my challenge to win a $10 gift certificate from Taylored Expressions!

All you have to do is make a creation using this sketch (card or scrapbooking layout) and post your creation on
Splitcoast using keyword "TECC52DB". The deadline to be eligible for the prize drawing is Thursday, January 29th, 8:00 p.m. CST. I'll announce the winner on Friday, January 30th.


Please check out the ladies (past featured cupcake samplers) who were selected to sample my sketch for you but before you do that, read on!)

Karen Motz on 2:39 PM CST said...

Thanks for the great sketch Donna! I love your card...pink and brown, what's not to love! It was so clever of you to add the pink to the slider tag...did you sponge it on while the tag was still in place?

Thanks for the great sketch. I gave it a try, though I am not happy with the results...the squares needed to be bigger and I was too tired to retry.

nancy guse on 3:38 PM CST said...

Donna, I put my card on splitcoast then came to your blog page and thought oh no I used the same bittersweet paper as you did!!! I must have seen your card earlier, but I didn't realize I used the same paper when I was making my card. This is amazing. This sketch was a challenge. Your card is wonderful!!

Kristin Bueter on 6:44 PM CST said...

Okay, so your card is absolutely GORGEOUS! I LOVE it! It's so pretty :O) I almost wish I hadn't seen it prior to trying the sketch though, because nothing I came up with was good enough. I kept thinking about your pretty colors!

Anyway, I know the challenge is officially over, but since I finally finished my card, I thought I would share. It definitely doesn't hold a candle to yours, but it will serve it's purpose :O)

You can view my card in my SCS Gallery.

Have a great week!
