Taylored Expressions friday cupcake sketch

Happy Saturday all!!! I certainly did not expect to be back in the craft room again today!! After spending sooooo much time in here last weekend doing the 13 challenges for SSE. But here I am with another Friday sketch from Taylored Expressions.

Here is this weeks sketch:

Here is my card:

This is one of those cards that is soooooo far from what I intended!! Does that ever happen to you?? I am liking the end result ...OK....not great! I ended up changing the sketch a little & as far as the colors go.....Seems the trend in Christmas cards this year is anything but red & green...have you noticed that?? So this might pass for one...not so sure! anyway... the paper & the stamp set is PTI, the ribbon is Michaels & I used 2 different cuttlebug folders & 2 different nesties. The rose is from the Scrapbook barn & the leaf punch is carla craft. Well that's it for this one! I need to go clean a bit now & get ready for the big opening day for football tomorrow!!! All my kids are coming for food & the game (Go Vikings)!!! I wish the temp's would follow the rest of the world & cool down a little!!! Still over 100 every day!!!!

Thanks for the visit!!!!

Okay, Gwen, I have to disagree; I think this is a FAB Christmas card. I HAVE noticed this year that any colors but red/green are "in" for the holiday & I just think this is perfect! LOVE it!!! YOU are so creative!!!

This is most definitely outside of the box with Christmas colour, but I think it is gorgeous. It would be one of those cards that you pull out of the envelope and go,
"Oooooooooo", then study it, and
rub your fingers over it, feel the texture and just enjoy.

This is so lovely Gwen! I love all of the tone on tone in different patterns and textures.

I'm glad the weather cooperated for your visit back to Minnesota. It has been beautiful. Go Vikes!

Yes, it happens to me all the time. Sometimes I would just discard the whole card and start again. But yours are great, Gwen!! I love it! The colors are so sweet and so non-traditional!
