Cupcake craft challenge #88 – DT project

Hello, I’m back with my project for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  Our theme this week has been chosen by Donna and is ‘don’t be square’, so no square cards allowed this week!!  I thought long and hard about what to make and decided to make something a little different – WHY did I decide to make a basket!!!!  You know what I’m like with things like this.  I’m fairly happy with the finished result but it took me ages to do lol!  For the photos I filled my basket with lots of gorgeous flowers from wild orchid crafts

Here it is (warning lots of photos):

We are sponsored this week by the stamping boutique and the DT were allowed to use one of their images on our samples.  I chose this super cute image called ‘princess Gwendolyn’.  One lucky winner will receive either 5 digi images or 3 rubber stamps of their choice.  Please check out the rest of the DT cards as they are stunning, as always. 

I’m entering my little basket into the following challenges:

Digital Tuesday challenge – April flowers or April showers

Crafty creations challenge – distressing (I tore all the papers)

CRAFT challenge – pink & brown

Sew many cards challenge – anything goes

DU2DS challenge – flowers

Bee crafty challenge – whole lotta fun (my punched handle has holes)

Prairie fairy challenge – distressing (torn papers)

Our creative corner challenge – blossoms & flowers

Secret crafter Saturday challenge – Distressing

Stamp, scrap & doodle challenge – girlie project

Magical crafts challenge – something for the girls

OSAAT challenge – flowers

I hope you will have a go at making something that isn’t square this week, it doesn’t have to be a 3d project, anything as long as it isn’t square will be eligible for our prize draw.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with this week.  Have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by.

Hi Denise
You asked me where I got my Charleston dancer from. The truth is that she's on permanent loan from a friend but the stamp is Australian and we have no idea where it was bought or obtained from!
If you want some images stamping out, let me know and I'll do that for you.
Have a lovely day.
Loving your cute basket xx
