The Pink Elephant #82!

WOW ... an exciting day -- today is my very FIRST Design Team project on behalf of the fabby The Pink Elephant Challenge Blog!!!!!!!!  Our theme this week at TPE is 'Mainly White' ... we are to create a project using mainly white - easy peesy, right?!?!?  And our wonderful sponsor is Meljen's Designs who has provided the DT with the most adorable digi images to design with this week!

When I received this image to work with, I immediately thought birthday cupcake!  I colored the mouse and cupcake liner in with soft beige Stampin' Pastels and then had fun with my bucket of glitter -- adding glitter to all the icing and sweet white pearls around the top of the cupcake liner!  I had some white glitter alpha stickers in my stash, used MFT's new border die and added some white satin ribbon threaded through the middle and finished it all off with some white Presto Prints DSP from SU!.

Wha-la ... what do you all think?  Please hop on over to TPE challenge blog to be inspired by my DT sista's amazing work -- they are a talented bunch of ladies and I'm delighted to be in the company of such wonderful girlies.  Lori and the girls gave me such a warm welcome ... if you haven't checked out their weekly challenges yet, this is a 'must do'!!!!!

Thanks for peeking ... I cannot wait to see your 'mainly white' designs :)
