cupcakecrafts 53 and die cuts r us

happy thursday :) this week over at CCC they are celebrating their 1st birthday! yay!! happy birthday CupCakes! their theme is to do something sweet and add a cupcake for a bonus. well whats sweeter than a yummy capcake and butterflies! ( ok my kitties are scowling at me, we'll add them to the sweetest list just not onto our card ) add in butterfly kisses, and sweet cupcake wishes.. a perfect day right:)
over at die cuts r us their theme was to use the colors teal brown and white/ivory and use your fave coloring medium. where most of you do the copic markers, gamsol etc.. my fave technique is just my good friends.. fluid chalks :) i usually use patterned cardstock for my cuts and just color/accent
with the chalk pads..this might not be exactly what the challenge was as far as the coloring..but its my fave :)
for this i used my cricut and wildcard cartridge (cupcake) the butterfly is cuttlebug
i cut an extra antenna from the butterfly and used that as a stem for the cherry, which is a red kaiserkraft pearl. paper is dcwv green stack. teal colored rhinestones are $bin item thanks for looking and have a great day :) shelly
