October Treehouse Contest

I'm so excited to share my sample for the October Treehouse Contest!  This month's image is an adorable Halloween Cupcake!  Since I am a gluten free girl my cupcake is also gluten free ;-)

Here's my sample....

I thought a Halloween Themed card was the perfect place to use my white gel pen on black background.  The frosting on the cupcake is filled in with Dazzling Diamonds.  I used the Gimp program to put my watermark on my photo.  My sample also fits this week's Speedy the Cats Friends Challenge # 22 to use a pumpkin in your card.

Here are the supplies I used:

Paper:  Basic Black, Old Olive, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Stamps:  Halloween Cupcake from Treehouse Stamps, Halloween Extras
Ink:  Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  White Gel Pen, Scallop Oval Punch, Black Grossgrain Ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch, Dazzling Diamonds

Here are the details for the October Contest:
