TSG172--Let Them Eat Cake...


     Hope you're all having a wonderful Tuesday.  :-)  I finally got caught up with all of you last night so this morning I was able to get up and finish this little sweetie for this week's challenge at There She Goes.  I'm not playing of course, just giving you some inspiration if you'd like to play along.
     The challenge theme is to make a card or project using something sweet: candy, cookies, ice cream…CAKE!!
     I've used some images from the Make A Wish set by Jessica Knutsen.  For the cupcake I stamped the cupcake bottom onto vellum and then used my score board on the lines so I could fold them and add dimension.  For the top I used Liquid Applique to make some fluffy icing and then popped on a few seed and bugle beads for sprinkles.  I probably didn't need to add a candle since this is a thank you card, but I wanted to try my hand at a rolled paper candle so it got one anyway.  :-)
     As a special treat, for our birthday celebration, the random winner of this challenge will receive a $15GC as a prize!!
     To be eligible for the giveaway,create a card or project using this week’s challenge(something sweet) and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (September 17th). The winner will get a $15 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
