A card for Princess Taylor

Taylor Jones, the sweet little girl who inspired the 'Spunky Princess' set from Unity, is turning 4 on March 3rd, and the Unity girls are showering her with cards. *smiles* She's such a strong, courageous little girl, is always smiling, and her story has really touched me and the wonderful Chelsea, who first challenged us to send her some cards just to bring another smile to this sweet girl's face. (To read about Taylor and see pictures, click {here}) This is what I came up with:
It's sweet and girly, don't you think? The cherry paper at the bottom is hand-stamped, make-your-own DP (Rose Red on a coral-y pink shipping tag). I paper-pieced the cupcake using Rose Red and Pink Pirouette papers, and added LOTS of layers and foam tape (there is foam tape under the cupcake's Rose Red mat, under the Whisper White mat layer, and under the Rose Red mat layer!). Yep, it's going to cost me a bit more to post, but I think Taylor is worth it! *grins*
I also stamped the envelope with lots of flowers all around the edge from the same set. *wink*

I'm hoping to be back later with more to share, but it's been a slow week (at least stamping-wise!). The kitchen is mostly finished, and I've been spending most of my time this week trying to get everything put into the cabinets and drawers so we can get the kitchen out of the living room *wink* I'll post pictures so you can all see once I have it finished...

Have a wonderful weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies used:
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Whisper White (SU!); pink shipping tag (unknown)
Ink: Rose Red (SU!); Stazon Jet Black (Tsukineko)
Stamps: Ginormous Sweet Cupcakes (Unity Stamp Co.)
Other: rhinestone brads (K & Company); ribbon (American Crafts); foam mounting tape (3M)

Welcome back, I missed you. I'm sure other people did too, but it's all about me :). Can't wait to see the kitchen! {HUGS}

Duh! I forgot to comment on the card. I have a good excuse, we went to see Kutless, Disciple and Stellar Kart last night and got home late so I'm sleep deprived. Anyhoo....I love, love the card. I especially love the handmade DP with the cherries on it! Very sweet and very clever. Now I want a cupcake.
