1st DT For Cupcake Craft Challenge!


Hello everyone. Today is a very exciting day for me as its the start of my new DT post over at The Cupcake Craft Challenge. This weeks theme is "Folds" and this is my piece.


Lauren wanted us to use at least 3 folds in the card so I used a tutorial from Claudia's blog. This is how it looked before being folded together.


This is the finished product. The papers and butterfly are from the new K & Co "Que Sera Sera". Flowers are a mix of Prima and others. Leaves made with L - Em punch. Rubon and Pearls from stash.



The sentiment is my new stamp from "Stamps by Woo" and has been stamped onto cardstock that I spritzed with Glimmer mists. Have added a lace trim before adhering to Bazzill Cardstock. Added a few more Prima Flowers to decorate.
Hope you like my piece and please do pop along and see what the other new DT's have created. Theres a new challenge every Monday and we'd love it if you could join in!

Hoping to get some crafting done this week, though with the kids off it could be a bit hit or miss. We had a lovely day out yesterday at the Hop Farm and Zoe got to hold a 10 day old lamb and a newborn chick.

Have a lovely week. I hope to do some blog hopping and crafting.
Remember my blog candy at the top of the page and please feel free to enter. Now counting down the days before my birthday. Last year with a 3 at the front!

TTFN & Thanks for looking!
