Cupcake Craft Challenge #99 Acetate & An Announcement

Another Monday, another challenge for you over at Cupcake Craft Challenge. Firstly, I'd just like to thank everyone who too part in my 'World Cup Wonders' challenge last week, I had a hard time choosing my Top 5 from the super entries! Cogratulations also to Spain for winning The World Cup 2010, well deserved! Ok now for the challenge...this week the lovely Victoria has chosen the challenge and she'd like to see you using acetate in your creations! I have to admit this was a real challenge for me, I ventured a little out of my comfort zone and made an aperture card. I used my round Nesties to cut out the aperture, cos I ain't got that steady a hand! I've put little gold pearl beads in the 'window', kinda like the beads on this little girl's necklace! The stamp is from Lili of the Valley... I'm really loving these stamps! I've coloured her with Promarkers. All the flat backed pearls are from Quixotic, love these too, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The little sentiment is one from my blogging friend Lyndsey Marie, one of her super designs.
We have a super prize this week for one lucky winner, our sponsor Paper Jewels is offering a $15 gift certificate, how great is that! Don't forget we'll also be picking a Top 5 too!

We also have an announcement to make concerning the Cupcake Craft Challenge, sadly Donna who currently runs the blog is unable to continue the management of the blog due to personal circumstances, so we are looking for a new owner to take over the running of the Challenge blog. Donna has done the most fabulous job running it all, and she will be a HUGE miss to us all! Personally, I'd just like to thank Donna for all her commitment and for asking me to be part of the Cupcake Design Team, I've loved being involved with such a talented group of girls!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges...
Wild Orchid Challenge 1st Week - Say it with Flowers
Totally Papercrafts - Swirls & Pearls
By The Cute & Girly - Warm Summer Days (I've gone for the colours and flowers)
