Cupcake craft challenge #141–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again, I told you I’d be back didn’t I lol!  This week over at cupcake craft challenge we have a theme that has been set by our competition winner Lisa and she has chosen ‘gingham and roses’, which is such a lovely theme.  I had such a hectic week last week that my card is one that I made a little while ago, but luckily fitted in with the theme!!  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 141 - gingham & roses

I also decorated the inside of the card (albeit plainly!)

I have used a gorgeous digi image from Just Inklined and I thought it was perfect for a sympathy card.  I know the CAS layout is quite unusual for me but I thought it was such a beautiful image that it really didn’t need to be fussed too much.  I have the say that the gingham ribbon is exactly the same colour as the rose IRL – I don’t know what has happened to the make it look blue in the picture!

We are sponsored this week by cupcake cards and crafts and the lucky winner will receive a gorgeous ‘shabby beautiful’ digital cardmaking kit.
