Cupcake Challenge 145

Hello everyone, today on Cupcake Challenge 145 we have a theme of things with tails that has been chosen by Donna. This week we are sponsored by our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp and they are giving us a $20 gift certificate as a prize.

I am also entering this card for the following challenges; A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 154 has a theme of flowers, Cute Card Thursday Challenge 167 has a theme of embellish you main image (I have added glossy accents to mine), and  Just Magnolia & Hanglar and Stanglar Challenge 110 has a theme of anything goes with the added option of lace.

For my card I used the very Sweet Magnolia with Butterfly from the Magnolia Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011 and she is coloured with copics and I have added some glossy accents to her nose and eye. I inked around the edge of my image with antique linen distress ink and I also inked my doily so it didn't look too white. The flowers are from wild orchid and the branches are done with my leone em punch. The lace and twill are from my stash and I finished off with some jewels.

This month our icing on the cupcake prize is sponsored by Little Claire Designs who are giving us a gorgeous 6 x 6 paper pad and two stamps as a prize, and all you have to do is enter at least one of our challenges this month to be in with a chance to win.
