Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card


Hope everyone had a lovely weekend and had some good weather. We've had gorgeous weather, lovely BBQ's and I've a nice tan. Looks like its here to stay for a few more days at least and what better way to celebrate than this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge. Kathrin has chosen this weeks theme "Its Summer".


I've had this gorgeous PB stamp for a while now and just couldn't wait to ink it up. I coloured it with Prisma Colour Pencils and Sansodor and am really pleased with my results. The stamp has a coloured image on the front so I tried sticking with those colours as this was more experimental but turned out so well, so just had to use it for a card. The papers are K & Co "Wild Rasberry" and I am in love with these. Such gorgeous colours and designs and they are double sided. The flowers are Prima and the flower centres are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have a deep A4 box full to the brim with handmade flowers I have purchased from here. I just love them and want them all. I've edged all the papers with a red chalk ink pad and punched a swirl which I have edged and added flowers.


Please pop on over to the Cupcake Challenge Blog and see what other wonderful creations the rest of the DT have made. I would be great if you could join in this week, I'd love to see how you interpret "Its Summer", and please leave a comment to let me know you've been to visit.
This card also fits in with this weeks challenge at the Pink Elephant, so here it is!
