Cupcake Craft Challenge 188...In the Deep End

Morning all, hope you've all had a fab weekend...mine has gone far too quickly and I'm back in work today after having a couple of days off last week. The kiddywinks are back to school today too so a bit of shock for all of us me thinks!

I'm coming at you from you Cupcake Craft Challenge today...we have super-de-duper challenge which has been chosen by my gorgeous teamie Sari and she wants you to get IN THE DEEP END! What does that mean exactly? Well, it's all about structure and depth...Gesso, Glossy Accents, Glitter Snow, Feathers, Fibres Chipboard, Corrugated card...hopefully you get the idea?

The depth on my card was created with Crystal Effects on the beer glass and bottle...the camera was playing naughty buggers and didn't pick it up too well, but you can just about see the glossy effect it has created!

We have two fab sponsors this week...
Digital Delights are offering a $5 gift voucher and
Sew Sweet are offering a £10 Gift Voucher

Design Papers: Sweet Shoppe Designs (Scraps found in my drawer))
Image: Digi Stamp Boutique (Wine & Glass)
Card Stock: SU! Bravo Burgundy
Embellishments: Jute Ribbon & Buttons from my Craft Stash!
Tools: Cricut used to cut circle
Sentiment: Created on the computer

Fab card, Donna. Love the 3D look. Not heard of Crystal Effects - is it like glossy accents?
