Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card - Christmas / Sketch Saturday


Good morning everyone. Had a pretty hectic week with one thing or another and am hoping to come back down to earth this week. The Cupcake Challenge theme this week is "Christmas Cards" which has been set by the lovely Pops. I really dont mind a challenge like this as I am one of those who always leaves it way too late but have managed 2 in the last few weeks (Whoopee)!! I actually used a stamp from Gorjuss Set 3. I do enjoy making more non traditional christmas cards and I thought that the crowns they are wearing were quite fitting for a christmas card. I have coloured her with SU Watercolour Crayons and Copic Markers. Stippled and inked around the frame. The papers are from Fancy Pants "Happy Holidays" and the sentiment, snowflakes and postage stamp are all from a set of Inkadinkadoo. I've had the set for years and use them every christmas. Added a piece of Gold Lace to finish and followed the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday. My card also fits this weeks Cute Card Thursday which also has a Christmas Theme.


I do hope you can join in this weeks challenge, the rest of the DT have some lovely creations and we'd love to have you. Thanks for looking and see you tomorrow with another post.
