Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card


Good morning everyone, and what a weekend we have had. Summer come early here in England I have the strap marks to prove it. What I love is that hubby does the BBQ's and I use paper plates so less work for me (LOL). Wouldn't it be great if it stayed a while longer!!!
This weeks challenge at CupCake Craft Challenge has been set by Evelina and her chosen theme is "FAIRIES". Had to think what stamp I had that would be suitable but then remembered I had an unused Anya which was perfect. I've coloured her with Promarkers and used papers from Crate Paper. Used El-M punch for the corner and SU punches for the circles, sentiment also SU. Doodled around image and again used my stipple brush, with green & blue chalk ink pads. Ribbon and flower from stash.


The insert is from Bearly Mine Design - Designer Inserts Extreme. If you use square cards, then I cannot recommend this highly enough. The colour and design choices are stunning and they can be resized. You can add your own text which you can of course personalise to suit. I cant live without this CD now and at only £8, well worth the investment. Here is a picture of an insert taken from the CD. I made a Fairy verse to match, which was ideal as I dont have a fairy sentiment in my stash at all. Have to say it is more beautiful IRL.
So please try and join us with this weeks Cupcake Challenge, we'd love it if you could play along. The DT have some fantastic creations for you to see, so pop on over!



I'm also entering this into the Scrappy Frog Challenge which also has a Fairy theme. 
Have a great week, kids back at school today and hoping the sun will stay, for a while at least.
