Your challenge is take inspiration from this yummy delicious cupcake image and create a project that has ribbon and or a bow on it. How easy is that?!!
I took my inspiration from the pink and brown colours, the floral plate, and the folded cupcake wrappers. I used the Bow easy to tie the tiny bows in the grosgrain ribbon.
The challenge is open til August 31st and the prize is an awesome $30.00 voucher to spend in the Scrapbook Boutique online shop.

Black with Two- August Challenge

This month's Black with Two challenge requires dominant black with green and no flowers! Not too difficult!
There are some great changes happening from this month at BW2- only one challenge per month but two prize winners! And from September onwards the criteria will be black with 2 colours (rather than black with one colour and another criteria). Its going to be great!
There is also a DT call out- so if you think you have what it takes to be part of the team why not apply?!
