Taylor's challenge 2

I finished 3 more cards for Taylor's year of the cupcakes celebration, so there will be 3 posts today - yep I go from no posts to 3; I need to find some balance!!

When I saw this sketch on Monica Davis's blog I figured I wouldn't do it because of the circle design, but I bought this Basic Grey Bohemia stamp after using it at a class with Kate at Scrapbookers Paradise North and she convinced me (not hard!) that I needed it.

I used su Sponge daubers to ink the image with SU's Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze. I added some dazzling diamonds to the butterfly.

To cut the card base I used my collozzle (large circles) and left the top uncut, then I took a little off the bottom so the card could stand. The baja breeze circle is cut with my nesties. The DS paper is from Basic Greys offbeat line.

Thanks for stopping by - there are still 2 more posts; it's less confusing on me to do them separately & I am still working on getting my coffee intake ....
