Cupcake craft challenge #142–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again, I’m back to share my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  The theme this week has been set by the lovely Faye and she has chosen “in the garden”, so we want to see things that you find in the garden.  Now I went down the fantasy route and my thing in the garden is a fairy (well they do live at the bottom of the garden don’t they!).  Here is my card (using one of our sponsors images).  Sorry there are a few pics today:

I tried my hand at making a tent style card and followed a tutorial I found here, although I did cheat a little and used a ready made card inside of two separate pieces of card as they do in the tutorial.  I am really pleased with how it turned out and it was very simple to put together – the hardest part was opening and closing the jump ring lol!  The gorgeous image is by sassy studio designs and is called ‘little honey’s tinkerbell’ and I coloured her with my promarkers.  I added some girly embellishments and voila my card was done!!

Our sponsor this week is sassy studio designs and the lucky winner will receive 4 digi images of their choice and I promise you, you will be spoilt for choice.

We also have a new cupcake joining our team this week – Jane – and to celebrate we have an extra prize up for grabs.  The generous gang at the ribbon girl are offering a stunning twine bundle to one lucky winner – to be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is leave a comment on Jane’s blog.  I am so jealous as it is gorgeous!

Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor and for May that is Crafts U Love and the lucky winner will receive a £15.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
