Cupcake craft challenge #121 – DT card

Hello again, I’m back to share my card for this week’s Cupcake Craft challenge.  The challenge this week has been set by the lovely Liza and she has chosen ‘non traditional Christmas"’ so another easy one for you!  I’m not entirely happy with my card but I would appreciate your thoughts on it.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 121 - untraditional Christmas

CCC challenge 121 - untraditional Christmas (close up)

I have used a super cute digi image from Meljen’s called ‘cosy mittens’ and for a change I’ve cut around it.  I’ve also added lots of stickles to the cuff so that it’s lovely and sparkly.

Our sponsor this week is Meljen’s designs and the lucky winner will receive 4 digis of their choice from their online store.  They have so many gorgeous images you will be spoilt for choice.

Don’t forget we also have our cupcake madness and our sponsor for December is Wild Rose Studio who are offering the lucky winner 2 gorgeous stamps (‘Kira’ and ‘Milton with teddy’.  The only rule is that you have to enter two or more challenges during the month – which is easy peasy right?
