Cupcraft Craft Challenge DT and Challenges


Hello everyone, made it threw the first week of the holidays and its gone pretty quick. Just like these challenges because today we have a new challenge for you over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge. This weeks theme is "Pink, Green, Brown, Animals and Flowers" which has been set by Stephanie. I just new I had to use my lovely new Alligator Stamp from Whimsy Designs. Denise has just launched a new range of animals and all of the DT were lucky to recieve a few of these to play with. I just love this alligator and new it would be perfect for this weeks card. He is available to buy at the Whimsy Shop.

I have coloured him and my new Hula Anya with Prisma Pencils and Sansodor. The gingham paper is Joanna Sheen, bought years ago but found a box full of here papers. I cut out loads of different shapes with My Cricut and Storybook Cartridge and used the Trellis, Owl, Leaves and Bushes on this card. Some Prima Flowers, Liquid Pearls in Gold and Stickles + a few Buttons to finish the card. This card is A5 which I rarely use.

We also have a sponsor for this weeks challenge, Soft pencils are giving the winner a $20 Gift voucher to spend in their Etsy Store.
I do hope you can join in this weeks Cupcake Craft Challenge. I had alot of fun making this card and love all the colours used.

Other challenges that my card is also fits in with is;
Stamp Challenge - Bugs and Butterflies
DutchDare - DieCut/Punches
Corrosive - Take Colours From Inspirational Picture
CRAFT Challenge - Pink/Green

Thankyou for taking the time to look at my blog, please remember my candy which is open to all. Have a great week!
