Sweet Things Challenge

A few Saturdays ago I got to spend an afternoon stamping and laughing with a few very talented stampers. I had never met two of the ladies before that day, but left with two new friends.  One of the reasons I like stamping with others is you get to borrow their supplies and try them out! :)  While using each other's stamps Jami decided we should have a card challenge. We all had to use the same image on a card to see what we could come up with.  We agreed to use Sweet Thing by Penny Black...love this cute little girl with her cupcake! 

I tried to challenge myself even more by trying out Taylored Expressions sketch challenge for this card. 
Here is what I came up with.

Check out what everyone else did:

a few pictures from the day:

stamps: Sweet Thing by Penny Black, Make a Wish by Taylored Expresssions
paper: cardstock-Stampin' Up!, Designer paper--Crate
other: Prisma Colored Pencils, odorless mineral spirits, Ribbon--My Mind's Eye, brads from Target $ spot

Oh I love the way the cupcake is outside the circle and seems to be coming right at me! Love those papers too! :) So glad we got to spend the day together!

Yep, I love that the cupcake pops out of the circle, too, and all your beautiful layering! Great job Jen! And, look, you've posted to your blog again... keep it up!!!

Hugs,
Lisa
