Cupcake candy and challenge

It's a new year and a new start at Cupcake Craft Challenge and we've introduced a new monthly bonus prize to our blog called 'Icing on the cake'. All you have to do is enter our weekly challenges more than once a month to be in with a chance to win. This month's sponsor! And here's what you could win:

A selection of Stampin' Up! 12x12 papers, some gorgeous self adhesive rhinestones and a Stampin' Techniques booklet. Remember to link your entries to the Cupcake Challenge blog!

We also have our weekly challenge and our theme this week has been chosen by Catherine la Chic and is 'White is White'. You can use other colours if you like but your project must be mainly white. Here is mine:

I've added a hint of Melon Mambo as it's one of my current fav colours to play with. My card features the Sale-A-Bration set Sweet Summer and I've stamped a few images using Basic Black ink and added a sentiment from another Sale-A-Bration set So Happy For You. I've coloured the butterfly with a Melon Mambo Marker and then decorated the card with Basic Pearls to add a bit of dimension.

Aren't the pearls just scrummy? I can't get enough of them. Righto, I hope you will pop back tomorrow as I have some very exciting news to share with you!! Can't stop today as hubby goes back to work tomorrow so I'm off to make the most of my crafting time whilst he gets to build robots with the bubbas and race Bob the Builder trucks up and down the living room. I may have to pop downstairs to watch Finding Nemo with them in a bit though!
