Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #26

It's cupcake Cupcake challenge again at Taylored Expressions! I really don't have a lot of cupcake stamps/images and you really don't need to use cupcakes for the challenge, but as she said if you got 'em why not use 'em? And besides what's a Taylor challenge without cupcakes ? Teethy

I used my Turtle stamp (remember this card?) from Whipper Snapper Design minus the frog. Dude is trying to deliver not just 1 cupcake but 3 to his friend frog and the way he walks, I think he can manage to deliver without dropping one. The cupcakes are covered with liquid applique for the frostings, added some crystal stickles and topped with dewdrops as cherries. Sentiment is from Papertrey's Faux Ribbon set. I was not really happy with the patterned paper that I used (oh, don't get me wrong, i love it) but it just doesn't do justice with this card, i guess my image is just too big for the sketch.

By the way, I won 4 tickets to a meet and greet with Colbie Caillat later today, I'll make sure to post some pics later. I'm taking my sister and my daughter and I have 1 extra ticket... wanna come with us?

Stamp: Frog by Whipper Snapper Design and sentiment from Papertrey's Ink

Paper:
Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Real Really Rust and Old Olive from SU, PP from American Crafts

Ink:
Black Staz-on Ink

Accessories:
Liquid Applique, Crystal stickles, Dew drops, SU small and large oval punch stamping dimensionals
