TECC51: Cuppie Fireworks

For this week's sketch I have a fun Cuppie Firework display for you - including calendar page for the month of July. I used Stamp a Sweet Impressions' A Year of Sweets 2 and was so happy to remember I have the DCWV adhesive mat pack in red, white & blue so I made the cuppie's liner patriotic. The white glitter mat on the cardbase is also by DCWV, glitter stack. For the sentiment from A Year of Sentiments I used my new Nestabilities ribbon tags! I was glad I even remembered I had the red, white & blue star brads too! Don't you just love this calendar that can be displayed on your desk or in your kitchen? I just adore this Frame Your Imagination calendar stand. It's really fun to work with.

Here's a close-up of the sparkle on the flag & fireworks!

Here is Taylor’s sketch so you can play along too!! You can be eligible to win Cupcake Sampler Honors & be featured on Taylor’s blog using the next Cupcake Friday Sketch! You’re not required to use cupcakes on your sketch, but if you got ‘em why not use ‘em?? You can create something other than a card but try to keep as close to the sketch as possible.
