Happy Birthday Taylor!!!


Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Taylorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Happy birthday to you!!! Yup, that's right, it's Taylor's big day and we've got a little surprise blog hop to celebrate.

I reached for my Sweet Occasions set and paired it with Taylor's current sketch challenge, TESC117. Doesn't that ice cream sundae look good enough to eat!!!!!!! I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and coloured it with copics. I also stamped it onto patterned paper from October Afternoon's Farm Fresh 8x8 pad so I could paper piece the frame around the image. I added glossy shine to the cherry and letters with my clear Glaze pen and I couldn't resist adding Espresso Dimensional Pearls to make the fudge topping look even more delicious!!!

I layered the image onto blush red dark and backed that with suede brown dark. The edge was punched with my open scallop edger and I added Tiny Twinkles between each scallop. I finished the card with some red glimmer twill for plenty of sparkle.

Taylor, wishing you a day filled with plenty of cupcakes and laughter. Have a fabulous weekend!!!

Here's the list of other friends wishing Taylor a big happy birthday:
