Cupcake craft challenge #137–DT card

I’m back again as promised with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  As I am very late with my post I will try and keep this short and sweet!  The challenge this week has been set by our boss lady Fluffy (Faye) and she has chosen “doctors and nurses” so we want to see all your get well cards.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 137 - doctors & nurses

CCC challenge 137 - doctors & nurses (close up)

I have used an image from DigiStamp Boutique called “nurse Grace” and coloured her with promarkers.  The background has been embossed and I again went for a monochromatic look (not intentionally though)! 

Our sponsor this week is Quixotic Paperie and the lucky winner will receive a £10.00 gift voucher to spend in their online store.  The very talented Elaine has also made a card sample for our challenge too!


We also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor and for the month of April we have Bunny Zoe’s Crafts and they are offering a £15.00 gift certificate as their prize.
