Cupcake Craft Challenge 162...Black & White Christmas


We recently ran a ‘Choose the Challenge’ competition over at Cupcake and the winner got to choose this week’s challenge which is BLACK & WHITE CHRISTMAS! I have to confess that this was a bit of a head scratcher at first and as usual I was overthinking the theme and making things difficult for myself…the only black and white image I could think of at the time was Penguins and thankfully I came across these cuties stashed away on my computer…I purchased them yonks ago and I’m so glad I found them as they are perfect for this challenge!

Sharon who chose this challenge theme is guest designing with us this week and you can check out her card along with the rest of the Cupcake creations on the Cupcake challenge blog. I hope you will be able to join in and play along with us this week…you could win a $20 gift certificate courtesy of this week’s sponsor Simon Says Stamp!
