Cupcake Challenge 134

Hello everyone, over on Cupcake Challenge 134 we have a theme of monochromatic and this week we are lucky enough to have two fabulous sponsors; the first one is Prairie Fairy Designs who are giving us the prize of five images of the winners choice, and secondly Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn is giving us the prize of a £10 gift voucher and anyone who reads the cupcake challenge post is entitled to a 10% discount on any purchases made this week, all you have to do is quote the code: CUPCAKEBLOG at the checkout....fantastic!

I am also entering my card for the following challenges; Just Magnolia and Hanglar have a theme this week of favourite colour combo (a tough one as I love so many, especially pink, but you can't beat a classic black and white combo for any occassion!), this week's Papertake challnge has a theme of three - I have used three different magnolia stamps and three different patterned papers if you count my doily as one!

For my card I have used Secret Tilda from the Magnolia Merry Little Christmas Collection 2010 and she is coloured with copics and accented with silver stickles and a ranger inkssentials pen. The sentiment is one of the Magnolia minis and it is just the perfect size to pop on the side of an image, and the flourish is also from Magnolia but it is actually a long stamp for a border, but I just partially stamped it to get the effect I wanted.

My DP is from DCWV and the doily is from Create4fun. I used a spellbinders fancy tag to create my two white tabs, which also came from Create4fun. Finally, the ribbon and jewels are from my stash.

This month our icing on the cupcake prize is sponsored by Wild Rose Studio who are giving us two gorgeous 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.
