Winner of Shelli Gardner’s SoShelli Creative Challenge contest—Fun with Folds!

Great News!!! I just got my first winning creative challenge contest from Shelli Gardner. If you're outside the family of Stampin Up, she's our Mother of All in Stampin up, the Co-founder and CEO of Stampin Up!. You should check out her blog HERE.

This morning, I got an email from her office stating that I was chosen as the winner of the April Creative Challenge Contest - Fun with Folds! I couldn't believe it at first because I never won anything here..hihi. I'm just one of the many who would like to be one of the chosens but never really got noticed..hihi. That's ok. I'm just here for the challenge and for the fun of it :)

My cake, thanks to all of you out there who had patronized my cake project, was the perfect entry for this challenge! And I said, why not! Nothing to loose but everything to gain :)

The cake featured here is another take that was ordered from me by someone celebrating a reunion. She asked if she could only have 9 for her friends, so I did! It still looked great! I used Whisper White on the flower and sprayed the Vanilla Shimmer- Smooch Spritz #118772. Boy, it looked like a confectionary. It was like pearlized shimmer on a flower candy. So LOVELY!!!

I hope you can see it in this picture. I also embossed the doily with the Textured Impression Folder - Perfect Polka Dots #117335. Not sure if you can see in the picture but it gave that classy look. I also added on the scallop, a pearlized white decorative fabric paint that hardens when it dries. It looked like candied pearls on a cake..teehee. yumm... anyway, I hope you like it too!

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Please visit my blog and my Stampin Up Website! Have a nice day!
