Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card - A Recipe - Challenge Card

I've had this stamp quite a while and couldn't wait to ink her up. This weeks challenge over at The Cupcake Craft Challenge is a Recipe of 3 Buttons, 2 Papers and 2 Ribbon. This is one of those cards that just fell into place and the stamp Inca Stamps) was a pleasure to colour. Papers are BG June Bug, MS Doily Punch, Shapabilities Die, and Woodware Inverted Corner Punch. All the other bits are from my stash. I've coloured the image with Promarkers and added Crystal Stickles and a Gold Spica Pen to hightlight, then edges the image with a stitched effect tape runner pen from DaisyD. This card also fits in with this weeks Crafts 4 Eternity which is "Buttons".
As usual, the rest of the Cupcake DT, have come up with stunning creations. Hope you can join in with this weeks challenge. Quixotic paperie are sponsoring this weeks challenge with a £10 gift voucher.
I'm going to pretty quiet in blogland this next week. Its the last few days before the children go back to school but whats really sad is that Daniel will be starting Senior School and will be boarding at a Special Needs school in Margate from Thursday. So I am intending on spending the next few days with him. So apologies in advance it I dont get round to visiting you all.
That all for now, TFL
