BBTB2 AMETHYST CUPCAKE CHALLENGE
































































Hi

It's Monday and time for the BBTB2 challenge and this week our lovely Stephanie has chosen the challenge for us. As the birthstone for February is Amethyst Stephanie asked us to create a card/project using a cupcake or birthday cake from any Cricut cartridge and the colour amethyst.

Well I had to go to my scraps box (I'm sure you all have them!) for this one as I didn't have any amrthyst / purple card in my stash! I found some lovely offcuts of Hunky Dory card which is a lilac colour and the same colour as lavender amethyst so decided to go with it! (It looks a bit pink in my photos but is really a lovely lilac colour in real life!) I also found the lovely black and white backing paper in my scrapbox which I had printed off a while ago and had not yet used, it's from a digital download from Pink Petticoat one of my most faves for digital papers.

I made a card using a 6x6" card blank which I covered with the backing paper then added some polkadot paper (also from my scraps and also Pink Petticoat) to break up the card and a strip of the lavender amethyst card which has a silver stripe through it. My cupcake is from Cake Basics cartridge cut at 3 1/2" shadow black base lavender polka dot card and top layer in the lavender stripe. I added some black ribbon trim which has black sequins entwined to the cupcake and a black tuille bow to the side. The greeting is some more of the scrap card layered and pop dotted and celebrate is silver ball sticky letters

Please pop over to BBTB2 and see all the yummy amethyst cakes that my DT sisters have created this week and we'd love to see your gorgeous creations to so hope you will join us in our challenge!

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great week!
