Happy Monday to all and welcome to our NEW CHALLENGE at THERE'S MAGIC IN THE AIR W/ PAPER CUPCAKES.    This week is was my turn to choose the challenge and I have chosen ALL WHITE w/ COLORED IMAGE.  I love the look of the crisp and clear white and shades of white (cream/ivory) and then adding an image full of color.  I hope you will come play along in our challenge. 

You have until Sunday, November 13 to link up your project at THERE'S MAGIC IN THE AIR.  While it is not necessary to use an image from PAPER CUPCAKES, we'd sure LOVE to see one!  Plus, you get an extra entry per project if you use an image from PAPER CUPCAKES and Nina always has some FREEBIES for you to try!

For this week's creation, I used PAPER CUPCAKES image "Yarah and Blow."  I love this gorgeous image and had so much fun coloring it with Copics, Fiskars glitter gel pens and Sparkling H2Os water color paints, which I used for Yarah's tail and wings.  I used papers from Bazzill and SU, pre-punched flowers from CTMH that I embossed with Cuttlebug folder.  Also used Cuttlebug folder for frame and second layer.  Frame and image cut with Nesties.  I used vellum, which I also embossed with Cuttlebug folder for strip down the side and added ric rac ribbon from CTMH and lace from Hobby Lobby.  Buttons from my stash and pearl glittered flower from Jolee's Boutique.  Sentiment is from clear Hero Arts set and cut with Nesties.  Hope you like it and will come play along.
