Un petit gâteau, madame?

Hello all! I must apologise as I have been MIA recently and haven't done any crafting or blogging... sorry if you popped by to see my Cupcake card yesterday and were disappointed... anyway here it is... 

This week at Cupcake Craft Challenge our theme has been chosen by our lovely Sari Sunshine... who wants us to get 'In the deep end'... meaning you have to use structure and depth in your creations... gesso, glossy accents, glitter snow, corrugated card etc etc! For my card I've gone for a little bit of Ranger crackle accents, then distressed the image with Distress Ink to bring out the cracks more. I've also added glitter to my cupcakes, and foam pads to raise them and the strawberries.

We have two fab sponsors this week, Digital Delights are offering a $5.00 Gift Certificate to spend in their online store, and Sew Sweet are giving away a £10 Gift Voucher to one lucky winner! If you'd like more inspiration, pop by the Cupcake blog to see what all my DT buddies have made this week!

Happy Crafting, the weather is pants so a great excuse to stay home and craft!
