Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 17

This is the first time I've participated in Taylor's challenge--heck, it's only the 2nd challenge I've done, PEE. REE. UDD.

I really like what I came up with, though. I was inspired! I have a ton of these tiny images from the $ sets by studioG. I got this idea to make a stack--I did a stack of cupcakes too, but this stack of presents turned out the nicest and with the least finger smudgies. (Me and the stamping--still not getting along!)

I used a craft base, making memories patterned paper and GP white for my image, which I stamped with Color Box pigment. I colored in the presents to coordinate with the paper, but I don't have an orange red so the bows are a bit TOO red (and my shadow is aaaaaaaaaaall kinds of wrong). The ribbon is Offray and the brads are Making Memories too, I believe. Since I put the sentiment on the image, I rearranged bits of the sketch to balance better for my eye.

I dont' know what I'll do when I run out of these stripes and dots!

***sorry for the crappy scan, I'll try to photograph the card in the sunlight tomorrow, look for an edit***

Dots and stripes are awesome! I can't believe you did all that masking to layer the presents and then proceeded to color them in too? Someone is a perfectionista.
