Cupcake craft challenge #187–DT card


Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card

Hello again dear friends.  I hope you’re all having a good day, although the weather is typical for a bank holiday Monday isn’t it?  It is absolutely chucking it down here – nice weather for ducks lol! 

I’m back to share my card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge and the lovely Jane has set the theme and she has chosen “spring is in the air” (just don’t look out the window when you imagine this theme haha!)  It is my auntie’s birthday today so I used this challenge to make her card – Happy Birthday Auntie Celia!  Here is my card:

CCC challenge 187 - spring is in the air

I used a super cute digi image from cc designs called ‘Rosalie with roses’ and I coloured her with promarkers.  The papers are again a mix – the striped paper is SU from the subtles pattern paper designer stack and the flowery paper is basic grey from the ‘hello luscious’ paper pad.  To add to the spring feel I added some flowers and butterflies.

We have two sponsors this week – firstly we have My Creative Classroom who are offering one seat on any Creative Classroom Course in the next year.


Our second sponsor is Paper Pretties and they are offering one lucky winner 6 images of their choice.

It’s not part of the challenge but I also decorated a brown sack to match my card (as very last minute I realised I didn’t have a gift bag for my auntie’s gift.  It’s very simple but it looks pretty next to the card:
