Cupcake craft challenge #149–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again, I promised I’d be back didn’t I?  I hope you are having a good morning so far.  Over at cupcake craft challenge we have a brand new challenge and this week the lovely Rachel has set the theme and has chosen ‘single layer card’.  Now as you know this is not my strong point and when I read the challenge I was filled with dread but hey that’s what a challenge is for I suppose.  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 149 - single layer card

I started by embossing my card blank with my new sizzix embossing folder called ‘folksy circle’ (please click on the pic for a larger view and hopefully you can see the embossing a little better) and I used an old and neglected clear stamp set from Elzybells (which is now sadly closed) and stamped the girl, sweetie and sentiment directly onto the card blank.  I coloured them with my promarkers and added some bright red pearls as a finishing touch.  Such a quick and simple card but still not my favourite type of card, I need my papers and layers!! 

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and the lucky winner will receive a $20.00 voucher to spend in their online store.


We also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor and for July that is polka doodles and the lucky winner will receive 4 Christmas stamps.
