…And a cupcake in a Pear Tree (Designs)

This is just sooo exciting on many levels!Not only is this a brand new weekly challenge  but I also got chosen to be part of the DT.Whoo hoo!!

Today marks the launch of the very first Pear Tree Designs challenge which has been set in the form of a sketch by Donna :

We were given the most delicious cupcake image to work with too.It’s one of Donna’s own designs and is available at Pear Tree Digital Designs for the bargainous special limited price of £1.00.

There’s a most  fantabulous prize up for grabs this week in the form of a Stampin’ Up Card Kit as well as two digi images of your choice from Donna’s store.

Why not pop over and check out the challenge and the other yummy DT cards?Go on,you know you want to!

For my card I used the rather aptly named Cupcake paper by Basic Grey and some zig zag corrugated card from my stash (I’ve got a ton of it and never use it nearly enough).I’ve coloured the image with Promarkers,added a highlight on the cherry with a permanent white pen before coating it in Glossy Accents.The icing has been created with three layers of a recently rediscovered white glaze pen.I toned down the papers with an ink pad as well as the card the image is on to make the cake pop out and say ‘Eat me’.I created a tag with a sentiment stamp I already had.I chose some red brads to finish the card and to compliment the cherry on the cake.
