Cupcake Craft Challenge #53 ‘something sweet’ – DT card

CCC challenge 53 - something sweet

 CCC challenge 53 - something sweet (close up)

This week is a  very special week as Cupcake Craft Challenge is celebrating it’s 1st Birthday with a blog hop!

If you have just come from Caryn's blog then you are in the right place! I am Denise and all you need to do is leave me a comment to be eligible to win my blog candy and then you need to hop on over to Donna's blog and leave a comment there! Donna will then tell you which blog you need to visit next!  The randomly chosen winner of my personal blog candy will win a Martha Stewart simple scallop paper punch (see picture below).

simplescallop

If you are not sure you are visiting the design team blogs in the right order you can go back to here and start from the beginning! There are 14 design team blogs in the blog hop and each one has some gorgeous candy to be won!  Please note to be eligible to win the individual design team candy you must enter the main cupcake craft challenge this week (we will be checking lol!). 

Don’t forget to enter this week’s Cupcake Craft Challenge to be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes that our sponsors have provided to help us celebrate our 1st birthday!  The theme this week is something sweet with the optional extra of a cupcake on your project.

Good Luck with your entries you have until 8pm Saturday 22nd August to enter and the winners will be announced on the Cupcake blog on Monday 24th August. 

For my card this week I stamped an image by stamping bella called ‘cuppacakeabella’ and coloured her with promarkers, adding stickles to the frosting on the cake.  I thought it would be quite apt to use the same martha stewart punch (I have my own I didn’t use the actual punch) on my card that I am offering as candy to show you the effect.  The paper is by DCWV from ‘the stack’ and the plain cs is from the papermill shop.  The ribbon and brad are from my stash and the flowers were created using the large and medium ek success retro flower punches.  The sentiment was created on the pc and was cut out with my SU oval punches.  I hope you will take part in our blog hop and enter my cupcake candy.  I will not be able to read any comments until my return from hols but I wish you all good luck and thanks for entering.  Thanks for stopping by today.
