CR84FN Color Challenge with Create a Cupcake!

This week's challenge uses the colors light pink, bright pink and chocolate.

I couldn't resist making another cupcake card with my new Create a Cupcake punch. It just makes it so easy to make a quick and easy card. I wanted to also try a technique my friend Penny taught me at our last demonstrator get together using the paper crimper. I took my blank card and inserted one side into the crimper about 3/4 of the way up and crimped. I just love the look it gives to the card base.

My other favorite item I used on this card are the Basic Pearls from Stampin' Up. I accented the scallops on the Extra Large Scallop Circle punch with the 2mm size pearls. They are a great value also as you get 150 pearls, 50 each size, for only $4.95.

If you are interested in purchasing any of these items, just click on my Stampin' Up logo at the top of this page to shop now. :)

Hope you had a great weekend with a little stamping thrown in!
