Join the DoubleClick Skittles Food Challenge!

There's one week left in the current DoubleClick Skittles Food Challenge.  There's always a fun prize up for grabs, so why not play?  Skittles are not required to enter.  Just link up your food themed creation but be sure and check out the challenge rules; backlinking is not allowed.

I truly believe that cake should be a food group unto itself.  I love cake in any shape, flavor....basically, I have a major sweet tooth.  I'm knocking out two birds with one stone here; I need a birthday card and a food card.  Voile!

I chose to use the Strawberry Skittles on my cake.  The cake is a Miss Kate Cuttables svg and it had some larger decorative circles which made for perfect placement of my Skittles.  The card shape itself?  I used my Cricut Explore to cut the layered card shapes with a scallop frame in the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge.

Aren't they yummy?  You can purchase most sets as a 3 pk for $4 or less or buy individual bags.  Each bag has 25 Skittles.  There's so many colors to choose from!  A rainbow of colors, just like the candy.... And as always, Carri offers free USA shipping and PAYPAL is accepted.  Now, that's a deal!  She even offers a free bonus bag on some purchases.  I've been asked by some of my followers, how to apply the Skittles.  I use Tombow Mono Aqua Glue to really make sure it stays put but mini or small adhesive dots work well too.  Experiment by adding a touch of glitter glue to the bottom of your Skittle.  That adds even more wow factor.  Be sure it's dry though, before adding your adhesive dot.  I usually go ahead and add my clear glue right away with no problems, though.  

Scroll down if you'd like to see the supplies I used.  Did you catch the new release of the "Believe in Magic" Skittles?  They coordinate perfectly with Disney projects and are still available.  Get them before they sell out though.  Don't come cryin' to me later.... 'cause you missed out!  #grin

Be sure and link up to the challenge by 8/18/15.   

Thanks for popping in to see my project!  I'd love if you'd click on the Friend Connect button on my upper right sidebar and become a follower. (P.S. I'm having a big blogiversary event this month!)
