BasicGrey Challenge #23

This week on the BasicGrey Challenge Blog the challenge is ........

Break your finger, strap it with tape to your other fingers and then we want to see your most stunning creation ever !! Easy as that !!

Whoops, that's only my very talented fellow DT member Rica that does tricks like that !!! If you are reading this my friend, I hope it feels better very soon. All the DT's creations are fantastic this week but the bravery and talent award has to go to Rica this week 'cause I don't know how she did it (perhaps she has a talented OH up her sleeve ?!!).

On with the real challenge this week. This week we have a colour combo. Pink and green, pink and brown or blue and brown. Don't forget you have to use at least one BasicGrey product on your creation.

This week our sponsor is The Cutting Cafe and we were very lucky this week and received from Regina her "All About Cupcakes" download to play with which was so kind.

This is the card I made with the download and for the challenge this week.

I used brown Bazzill as my base card.

The pink and brown papers are BasicGrey from "Bittersweet". The pink paper has been punched with a Fiskars scalloped daisy border punch.

The patterned paper is DCWV "Sweet" - these are so yummy and were perfect for this challenge.

The cupcake has been coloured with ProMarkers, cinnamon and burnt sienna (cake), blossom and rose pink (icing), amethyst, lilac and lemon (flower).

Now if you zoom in and look carefully, the top of the cake has been covered with glossy accents, tiny pink and purple beads sprinkled over the top and also twinklets which I love because it looks like it is sugar coated - yum ! yum ! If you look extra careful you will see that I have done the same with the tiny cupcake on the sentiment.

I also decorated the inside....

I'm looking forward to seeing your yummy creations !

I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger this week. Being half term I've had Ski at home and we've been busy bees all week and I've only found the time to make my DT cards.

See you tomorrow when the new challenge on Colour Create will be announced.

Have a great Saturday and thank's for looking !
