Magnolia Down Under Challenge #8

This week over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges, they have the cutest theme: Cupcakes. I had only just received my Magnolia cupcake stamp the other week, so it worked perfectly for this card. I've also used Tilda with envelope.
So here it is: I've co-ordinated my colours around the Designer Paper Rasberry Tart. The combination of colours are: Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Pretty in Pink & Kiwi Kiss.
I've used the rub-ons from the Hand Drawn - Level 3 hostess set for the sentiment - 'hey cupcake'.
I've used my photo corner punch, some small pink rhinestones and grosgrain ribbon. And I've also used my glue pen and glitter for the cupcake.
The images have been stamped onto my new white cardstock which I just received from Bizzy Bec's. It's a perfect base for colouring in your images. The ink doesn't soak in to quickly, giving you time to work with the colour. I've used my ink pads and aqua painter for this card.

Products used:
Stamps: Magnolia Stamps
Cardstock: Rasberry Tart DP, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Kiwi Kiss, White
Accessories: Photo corner punch, ribbon, rhinestones, glitter, glue pen, aqua painter with ink pads, rub-on, sponging, mat pack

So there's my creation for this challenge. I got in on time with this one, as Convention is coming up fast and I want to be organised before I leave. I'm really looking forward to going, seeing what it's all about, learn some new things and put faces to names. It will be so much fun. I have hubby looking after the three older boys and my mum is having baby Caden. So I'm very thankful that I have the opportunity to go this year. I can't wait to share the excitement of it all.
