Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card/ BG Challenge

This is my card for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge and has this week been set by my blogging buddie, Donna who has created a fab Sketch for you to follow. I've used one of Chris's digi downloads available HERE and coloured with Prisma Pencils, blended with Paper Stump and Sansador and added Spica Pens. The papers are BG "Porcelain" and the flowers are made from my new Martha Stewart, Laying Flower Punch I received from Stamps and Memories. Sentiment printed onto Safmat and scallop ribbon from stash.

I'm also entering this card into this weeks Basic Grey Challenge which is a them based on Ice-Cream. I love Strawberry, especially the Italian  sort and theres alot of pink on my card. Think I'll pop that on my shopping list to, hoping summer is just round the corner!!
I do hope you can play along with this weeks sketch. The other DT have come up with fab pieces for you to see, so pop on over and take a look!
