Cupcake craft challenge #135–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again crafty friends!  I’m back as promised with my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  I’ve had the honour of choosing this week’s theme and have gone for “flowers for mum” (or Mam as I call my mother lol!) as it will be Mother’s Day on 3rd April.  I thought it would be an excellent opportunity for you all to make your cards in plenty of time.  I have a double whammy as this year my mother’s birthday also falls on Mother’s Day (groan), so it’s a double set of cards needed for the weekend.  Anyway enough of my rambling here is my card:

CCC challenge 135 - flowers for mum

CCC challenge 135 - flowers for mum (close up)

Sorry the pictures are a bit naff today but I didn’t take them until late at night and these were the best I could get.  I was lucky enough to use one of our sponsors images this week called ‘Victorian’ and coloured it with my promarkers.  I’ve eventually used one of the gorgeous filigree corners from wild orchid crafts which I’ve had in my stash for ages.  I wasn’t quite sure what to use to stick them down but I used a wet glue that dries clear and that has done the trick perfectly. 

Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs and the lucky winner will receive 4 digi images of their choice and you will definitely be spoilt for choice as they have so many gorgeous and girly images in their store.

Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ prize and for March our sponsor is wild rose studio and one lucky winner will receive two of their 2011 spring release stamps – ‘Mia with Teddy’ and ‘Toby with Butterfly’ (pop over to the challenge blog to see pics).

The rest of the design team have created gorgeous samples for your inspiration once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out or you can click on their names in my sidebar.  We really appreciate all your comments.
