one year of belli challenges

Good morning stampers! Sorry this is up a little late but I hope you enjoy anyway!

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 all must pick 5 ingredients, and reply here with your choices, you can list them on your upload too, but don't share what the ingredients stand for, link them up here! Tomorrow I 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?? Be sure to reply what your 5 choices are. My five ingredients are: flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs.

Here are the ingredients, be sure to choose 5!

Flour
