Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card - Crafty Creations Challenge

Wowzer, whats happened to the weather down here? Yesterday we spent the day in the garden, had a bbq and even managed to get burnt. I've got lovely strap marks (which I hate) and my Zoe has got burnt arms, poor girl. Alot hotter than predicted and supposed to be about 27oC today so the chores and decluttering will have to go on hold. I just love the sun and wont waste a single moment of it!
This is my DT card for this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge which has been set by the lovely Erin and is a recipe 2-2-2. Please pop over to the challenge blog for more details.
I have used my new Anya reading her book. All the papers are BG Blush and I have paper pieced her dress and the book. The rest has been coloured with Copic Markers. For the 1st time, I have made my own hanging charm which I've attached through a spacer available from The Hobby House. The rest of the card are bits and pieces from stash. I'm terrible for remembering where I purchase certain things.

Do go take a look at what the other DT's have made, great examples and a fab challenge.
This card also fits into this week Crafty Creations Challenge which is Metal.
Hope the weathers good for you, enjoy your day and be back again soon with another post
Thanks for looking
