Cupcake craft challenge #144–DT card

Hello again friends.  I’m back to share my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge.  I have the honour of setting the theme this week and I’ve chosen a zesty colour combo for you to use: 

  CCC 30th May colour challenge

Here is my card:

CCC challenge 144 - zesty colours

CCC challenge 144 - zesty colours (close up)

I really love this bright and cheerful colour scheme and I was really looking forward to using it but for some reason my mojo wasn’t co-operating and I really struggled.  I’m still not 100% happy with this card but it’s much better than my original attempt!!  I love all the individual elements but I just think that something’s missing!  I used a gorgeous image from some odd girl called ‘dancin’ Kaylee’ and most of the papers are SU except for the flowery paper at the top which is from my scrap box. 

Our sponsor this week is pink gem designs and the lucky winner will receive 4 images of their choice. 


Don’t forget we also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor, who for May is Crafts U Love and they are offering one lucky winner a £15.00 gift voucher for their online store.

Crafts U Love

The rest of the design team have created beautiful samples once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out.  We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Creative craft world challenge – use 3 or more flowers

Penny’s paper crafty challenge – here comes summer (my colours)

The pixie cottage challenge – sketch and/or here comes the sun (my colours are very summery)

Your next stamp challenge – sketch

Mami doodles challenge – let’s party (she looks like she’s partying!)

Catch the bug challenge – bright colours

Cupcake inspirations challenge – inspiration photo (bright colours/flowers)

Ok, so that’s my lot for today.  I hope you’ll be able to join in with my challenge this week and I look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your beautiful cards.  Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.
