Cupcake Challenge 115

Hello everyone, well I have got my act together after my holidays and I am now back in the swing of DT creations too so this week over on Cupcake Challenge 115 we have a theme of thank you with autumn colours. This week we are sponsored by our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp and as usual the prize is a fabulous $20 gift certificate + free shipping. I am also entering this card into this week's Creative Card Crew Challenge and Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 127 as they both have a theme of punches.

For my card I have used Christmas Eve Tilda from the Magnolia So Jolly & Under the Mistletoe Collection 2009 and I have colored her with distress inks. I love this stamp as I love the way that it can be used all year round for a variety of different occassions..... so versatile!!! The background has been inked with antique linen and vintage photo and I have stamped the Old Valentine Letter from the Magnoia Valentine Collection 2009 in vintage photo ink too.

All the DPs are from Papermania and each one has been inked with antique linen and edged with walnut stain inks. The punched edge was done with an MS punch that was one of my new purchases from when we were in Florida and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash. The sentiment is from WOJ, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I punched out the little branches with my leone em punch.

Also as it is the start of a new month we have a new Cupcake Madness prize up for grabs and this month it is sponsored by Some Odd Girl. To be eligible for this prize all you need to do is enter at least two different Cupcake Challenges this month for your name to be aded to the draw.
