Cupcake Challenge 119

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 119 we have a theme of "Light it up" and we would like to see a candle somewhere on your card or project. This week we are sponsored by The Character Cafe and they are offering one lucky winner a $10 gift voucher as a prize. Apologies for the yellowish hue on my photo, the light was bad and the paper has a creamy/goldenish finish which didn't help!!

For my card I have used Willow with Lantern from Whiff of this stamp, I think she looks so elegant..... and I have coloured her with distress inks and added some sparkle with red stickles. The DP is from Fancy Pants and the ribbon, charm and jewels are from my stash.

Both the centre panel with the ribbon threaded through and the poinsettia have been created with creatables dies. For the poinsettia I used the smaller die in the pack and I cut and embossed two red shapes and one green one. Before I removed my shape from the die I sponged the red ones with fired brick distress ink and the green one with peeled paint to make the embossed elements really stand out. I then removed the shape from the die and I sponged around the edges. Finally I shaped them with a embossing ball tool, glued them together with a small blob of liquid glue and I added a golden jewel to the centre.

Also, don't forget our Cupcake Madness this month which is sponsored by Some Odd Girl, and make sure you check out the creations make by the other cupcakes....awesome!
