Belli Challenge #52 - Bake a Cake Challenge!!

Can you believe it has been ONE YEAR of Belli Challenges already!? For those of you who may not know what a Belli Challenge is...

Each week, we try a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!

For the week of January 28, Belli #52, we are hosting a VERY special Belli Challenge in celebration of our One Year Anniversary. Some of you may have played this game before with some other groups... We will be BAKING A CAKE to celebrate our First Anniversary of Belli Challenges.

How do we play BAKE A CAKE?

Listed below is a list of cake ingredients. You must pick 5 ingredients, you can list them on your upload too, but don't share what the ingredients stand for, link them up to Chrissy's blog! Tomorrow Chrissy will give you the list of what the ingredients are equal to in Embellishments! On this second list is the corresponding crafting ingredient for the items you picked. For example, flour = ribbon (just an example - the actual list is different). Your challenge is to create a card with those 5 ingredients that you chose. You could wind up having to create a card with ribbon, chipboard, designer paper, buttons, and paint. This is the fun part. You don't know what you are picking!! Are you ready for this fun challenge??

Here are the ingredients, be sure to choose 5!
Baking soda
Powdered sugar
Cream cheese
Cocoa powder

For my card, I had picked flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and powdered sugar. It was a challenge for me to put all that on my card, because I'm not a foo-foo stamper. My cards are usually clean and simple. But I managed to squeeze all my Cake Ingredients onto this card. :-)

Check on Chrissy's blog for the second list which will have the equivalent crafting ingredients. I hope you join us in our fun Anniversary Challenge!!

Lee Murphy joins us again this week as our special guest designer. HERE is her blog, so check out what she has created!!

Oh my goodness Holly! I just saw this for the 1st time and can't believe how close in design it is to mine! Honest, I didn't copy yours! All I can say is "great minds" you know! This is uncanny, I still can't believe the likeness. Yours is gorgeous! Mine was for last week (51) not this week's Cake!
