Cupcake Challenge 123

Hello everyone, today we return from our christmas break with Cupcake Challenge 123 and we have a theme of White is White. As you may have guessed we would like to see creations with white as the main colour and this week we are sponsored by our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp.

I am also entering this card into Just Magnolia and Hanglar Challege 87 where the theme is anything goes.

For my card, strangely enough, there isn't a piece of DP in sight...instead I went mad with my embossing folders! All the card I used has a pearlescent finish so in real life the card is lovely and shimmery. The punched edge was done with an MS punch around the page set and last, but by no means least, I have used Waiting Tilda from the Magnolia Winter Collection 2008. To finish off I used some lush satin ribbon, a snowflake charm and some jewels.

Also this month there is a slight change to our monthly prize, it is simply going to be an extra chance for you to win! This month our icing on the cupcake is sponsored by Blue Jelly Stampin'. Blue Jelly Stampin is, of course, our very own Victoria, who is an Independent Stampin Up! Demonstrator. Stampin Up! are currently running their popular Sale-A-Bration promotion. Victoria is being featured in Quick Cards Magazine, which will be available from 04 January, so if a visit to her faberoony Blog isn’t enough for you, you can get your mitts on her there too! ;)

Blue Jelly Stampin are offering one lucky winner, chosen at random, Stampin Up! Stash including a selection of 12x12 SU papers, rhinestones and a brilliant Techniques booklet.
