Cupcake craft challenge #172–DT card

** THIS IS MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY**

Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again dear friends.  I’m back to share my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  This week the lovely Jane has set the theme and she has chosen “don’t look at the light” which means she wants to see all your glitter, bling and sparkly things on your cards and creations.  I made a Christmas card for my niece and the DT were lucky enough to be given a digi image by our sponsor.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 172 - sparkle

The fun image is from Saturated Canary digis and is called ‘Maddie’ and I coloured her with promarkers and flex markers.  It’s difficult to tell but I added stickles to her pom-poms and also the ruffles on her dress.  I threaded ribbon through the lace and die cut some snowflakes for decoration and I went a bit mad with the gems lol! 

As I mentioned our sponsor this week is Saturated Canary digis and one lucky winner will receive 2 digi images of their choice from her wonderful etsy store.

Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor who for December is Polka Doodles and two lucky winners will receive a copy of the Pretty Sweet CD
