Brenda's Challenge

Challenges are a great way to improve your crafting skills! I have to admit that I've not participated in many until recently but I've learned that they are perfect for giving you that inspirational 'spark' you need to get started on a project. Brenda (she is on my blog roll - check it out HERE) is hosting a set of demonstrator challenges for the month of May (If you are a member of the SCS demo forum, you can read about them HERE - If you aren't a member, ask me how you can BECOME a member!)

This project is for the Color Challenge - Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, and So Saffron. I 'started' this in my head yesterday but the only color I had settled on so far was Saffron . . . as soon as I read Brenda's challenge, I was good to go!

The picture really doesn't do the tag justice (if I may say so myself! LOL) . . . the saffron layer is embossed with polka dots using my Big Shot and the cupcake is very popped up in 3 different layers. And what you can't see is the back that is covered with Riding Hood Red DSP . . . you saw my previous post about the awesome DSP special, right?

Well, off to get ready for the Birthday Party! Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

Your tag is wonderful. The cupcake looks so bright and cheery done in those colors. I also like how you did the Happy Birthday banner. TFS!!
