Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card - A Shaped Card




What gorgeous weather we here yesterday, sat in the garden with my Prisma's while hubby done the BBQ. Thats the life for me LOL. Todays challenge over at Cupcake is "A Shaped Card", anything but square. I used my old bookatrix board for this. Had it for years and hardly ever use it so blew off the cobwebs for this occassion. The image is from Cuddly Buddly and have coloured with Copics. The sentiment is one of my favourites, a stamp from Stamps By Woo.

Added some flowers form stash just to pretty it up. I chose to keep this card pretty simple, a case of less is more. Ilda Co are sponsoring this weeks challenge with some free digi images to I do hope you can take part.

My card also fits in with this weeks One Stop Craft Challenge - Angels/Fairies & Papertake Weekly, Take Your Pick.
Thanks for looking and back tomorrow with another card!
