See, what I am doing is...

I am using up all my previously purchased stamps that I haven't inked yet so that I can justify to my DH that I need MORE. Although I did order some from Verve Visual last night. hee!

Anyway, I just love, love this stamp set from Gina K. But! Again, I hadn't used it. Well, I think I used one of the stamps once but I hadn't really used it. :)

I used Taylor's cupcake challenge sketch and put together this little card. It is a great sketch and soo versatile! I didn't know what direction to take this so I just started futzing around with stuff. And, so I made a few mistakes along the way (see the cuttlebug dots on the back of the card? Yeah, I glued down the bottom white border punch stuff first so I didn't want to emboss over it so I just did what I could and I'll stick down a piece of white paper on the inside to hide it) but meh, I think it turned out okay!
