Taylor's Cupcake Challenge #71

Good afternoon! It's another lazy summer day around here. I slept in again, which was a little tricky. My arm is still healing from the break, and apparently I did some nerve damage as well. Yesterday my doctor gave me this "terminator" brace to wear at night to help hold my arm straight... I think I woke up about ten times last night from that bulky contraption. But if it works, it's worth it! I ran to the grocery store this morning (the fridge was getting a little empty), and decided to pick and pickle some of my pickling cucumbers. Let's hope they turn out! This was my first try at pickling!

I love this sketch from Taylor this week! I just had to play along! I immediately went to my Bloom & Grow dp by My Mind's Eye. Love this stuff! I did a bit more laying than my normal, but I really like how this card turned out. Very soft... I started with an image in the middle, but change to a sentiment... I couldn't figure out where else I would put one without upsetting the balance of my card. Verve stamps to the rescue! They seriously have my most favorite sentiment stamps. I did two layers of ribbon and then tied a knot in that back layer. A few jewels at the top gave it just enough sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!
