New Challenge Blog...Guest Designer! 33

Mona Pendleton | Monday, April 19, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | ,

Hi Everyone! Here to share with all of you some very exciting news - Today kicks off the beginning of a new weekly challenge blog named City Crafter Challenge managed by Kirsty Lim. My dear, sweet friend Heather, who is a Designer on the challenge team has invited me to be the very 1st Guest Designer for this weeks challenge, CCCB1, which happens to be a Cupcake theme :) Thank you so much Kirsty for this special opportunity to kick off the beginning of your new adventure & Heather for thinking of me :)

Here is my Happy Birthday card:

This card was quite simple to make :) To make the background, all I did was emboss a piece of cs, punch & ink the edges then stitch on a few strips of Basic Grey DP. I layered the cupcake image atop a Spellbinders ™ Nestabilities S4-114 Standard Circles Large, S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles Large using a few various Copic markers, stitched on a button & sprinkled on some Pixie Dust :) Well not really Pixie Dust rather, Melissa Frances Mica flakes, which creates such an amazing effect!

If you have never used Melissa Frances's Mica flakes, you don't know what you are missing! They are super light, stick very easily & have an amazing effect! That's all for today. Thanks for stopping by & taking a peek :) Be Sweet!

For COMPLETE details, please be sure to visit City Crafter Challenge & be sure to visit ALL the DT's sites as well! Once you have your card photographed, be sure to go to City Crafter Challenge and post a direct link to your project on the site. If you upload to on online gallery, please be sure to label your project as CCCB1.

Ingredients Used:

Stamps: Papertrey Ink

Paper: Basic Grey, Papertrey Ink

Ink: Copic Markers, Memento, Ranger

Other: Spellbinders ™ Nestabilities S4-114 Standard Circles Large, S4-124 Classic Scalloped Circles Large, Melissa Frances Mica flakes, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Offray ribbon, button from stash

The mica flakes are wonderful for the top of the cupcake. I haven't used any before. The embossing and stitching are a fab addition too.
