Friends are Like Cupcakes Card---It's an IAS Challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions...

Hello there, fellow Crafters!  Another week has passed and today, we have another IAS (Ink and Such) Challenge for you at Jackson's Digital Expressions (JDE).  It's Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) themed so, we encourage you to make projects centered on the theme or use lots pink.  But you can link any kind of project, really.  This week's Challenge is geared towards a good cause.  Several JDE Designers have pledged to donate $.25 to Breast Cancer Research for every entry in our challenge this week.  We are not looking for money from you, just participation. Make sure to invite all your Crafty friends and head over to our Challenge site to find out some details and to link your projects.  Our DT team have showcased a wonderful array of projects you can take inspiration from.  Here's what I cooked up for you.

I used Chef Eli from Robert Jackson's Digi Collection.  I enjoyed coloring the image with my Prismacolor Markers.  I used an A7 Kraft card base and attached some layered panels on it.  My DP and cupcake embossing folders are from Paper Studio, layered with burgundy and black CS for matting.  The satin ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is from a book called "Guide to the Perfect Word" that I computer generated.  I incorporated lots of stitching in this project and to finish it all up, I attached some white gems from Imaginisce.  I am so pleased with how this card turned out and I hope you'd enjoy it too.  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Brown Sugar featuring "Anything Goes"
2.    Dude Time Doodles featuring "Masculine+Sentiment" 
3.    Creative Craft Challenges 2 featuring "Anything Goes" 
4.    Love to Create featuring "Anything Goes" 
5.    Stamp n Doodle featuring "Anything Goes" 
6.    Paper Crafting Journey featuring "My Sentiments Exactly!" 
7.    Simply Create Too featuring "Anything Goes" 
8.    Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude featuring "Anything Goes" 
9.    Your Next Stamp featuring "Anything Goes" 
10.  Daisy Doodles featuring "One for the Boys" 
11.  Hooked on Craft featuring "Cards for Men" 
12.  Paper Makeup Stamps featuring "Anything Goes"
13.  Divas by Design featuring "Lovely Layers" 
14.  Deep Ocean featuring "More than 2 Colors"

FRIENDS ARE LIKE CUPCAKES CARD WITH ENVELOPE:

I give thanks to God, my Father, for allowing me to complete another project.  I am spending some quality time with my beloved family and had to complete several projects prior.  I don't know about you but I don't make cards in an hour.  I need an ample amount of time to make sure my projects are meeting my standards...LOL  So, to make 4 cards in a couple of days (with all my usual responsibilities, oh, and with very little sleep...LOL) was record breaking for me...LOL  One of my treasured verses in the Bible is in Philippians 4:13,  "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." So, I say thank you, Jesus, for the inspiration and the strength to carry out your plan for me each and every day.  I am eternally grateful.
