Cupcake craft challenge #166–DT card

** THIS IS MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY **

Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again, I’m back as promised with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week the lovely Shelly has set the theme and she has chosen “take a leaf out of my book” which means we want you to use leaves as the main interest on the project, either the image or embellishments.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 166 - take a leaf out of my book

I was lucky enough to be offered an image from our sponsor this week (who are tickled pink stamps) and I chose this one called ‘vintage Christmas Christina’ and coloured her with promarkers and flex markers.  I created the holly background with a see-d’s stamp and coloured them with promarkers.  The dotty paper is HOTP from the ‘forever Christmas cards’ paper stack.  The holly were cut out with a sizzlit die and I used pearls for the berries. 

As I mentioned our sponsor this week are tickled pink stamps and one lucky winner will receive either one rubber stamp or two digital images of their choice.

Tickled pink stamps 

Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsors and for October we have two!!  Firstly we have Polka Doodles and they are offering one lucky winner a copy of their ‘pretty sweet’ CD collection.  Our second sponsor is Scrap Affair and they are offering one lucky winner a 5 pack of promarkers.

The rest of the design team have created amazing samples as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
