Cupcake craft challenge #118 – DT card



Hello again, I’m back with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week our theme has been set by the lovely Kathrin and she has chosen “light it up” i.e. she wants to see a candle somewhere on your project.  I did toy with the idea of decorating a real candle but then came across this really cute image from Heather Ellis and so decided to make an easel card instead.  Here is my card:

Sorry there are so many pics but easel cards are so difficult to photograph aren’t they (especially for me with my useless photography skills lol).  This is actually a dinky 4 x 4 card but it looks so cute IRL. 

Our sponsor this week is the character cafe and one lucky winner will receive a $10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.

We also have our monthly cupcake madness prize and it’s the last chance for November to be in with a chance to win the $9.00 voucher courtesy of some odd girl.  If you’ve entered two or more challenges this month you will be entered in the draw to win the voucher.
