Cupcake craft challenge #72 - DT card

CCC challenge 72 - baby card

CCC challenge 72 - baby card (close up)

The theme over at cupcake craft challenge this week has been chosen by yours truly and it is ‘make a baby card’. I love making baby cards so jumped at the chance to have this as our theme. I haven’t made a baby girl card for ages, seems to have been all boys last year so opted for a girly one this time. I used a gorgeous image by elzybells and coloured it with my promarkers, adding stickles to the heart and stars. The pretty paper is DCVW from ‘the stack’ and the plain card is from the papermill shop. I used my CB to emboss the white panel with my new daisy pattern embossing folder and lightly rubbed over the panel with a chalk inkpad to highlight the embossed daisies. I cut out the image with my circle nesties. The flowers are from my stash and the leaves were cut with my MS frond punch. I added stickles to the flowers, leaves and embossed panel. The sentiment is by verve and I added stickles as a border around it. The gorgeous tulle ribbon is from tabby crafts.

My fellow DT members have excelled themselves this week and have created some gorgeous samples so if you have a chance please check them out.

The lucky winner will receive a $20.00 gift voucher and free shipping courtesy of Simon Says Stamp so definitely an incentive to join in the fun.


I can’t wait to see what you cuteness you create this week and look forward to visiting your blogs. I think it's probably too late to enter the Mojo Monday sketch challenge but I used their sketch for last week. A lot of the challenge blogs have a similar theme this week so I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Celebrations

Daring Cardmakers - New beginnings

Stamp Something - New somethings (my new embossing folder)

Stampin' for the Weekend - New beginnings

One Stop Craft challenge - Something beginning with B (baby)

Secret Crafter Saturday challenge - New beginnings

Thanks for stopping by today.
