TECC #76 Cuppie Cake Friday!

Time for another sketch challenge from Taylor! This is for TECC76 and I'm hoping I made it in time to post... nothing like waiting until the last minute!

First off, let me apologize for the bad lighting in these photos. My OTT light is perfect for working, not for photographing!

I found this ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY awesome hand-dyed silk ribbon at a little boutique a couple of miles from my office. It is beyond lovely :)

Stamps: TAC's Little Cupcake

Paper: TAC's Angelee SWIC & Cardstock, White UltraSmooth cardstock

Ink: Burnt Umber & Haystack Palettes

Other: uber-cool silk ribbon, Prismacolors w/ mineral oil, Brown Scrapper's Floss, PTI & misc. buttons, foam tape, Nesties

I know, I know... the bow is a little too big, but I was rushing to get it done and so it goes :) The whole thing has a bit of a vintage feel, no?

What do you think?
