Good evening to you all! I had this card made a couple of days ago but the weather changes seem to have that 'ill feeling effect on me' but never mind...i think i've missed the challenges it was intended for and i'll still enter for a few. Created my own template to fit in an A6 enevelope so it's fairly small but I've managed to fit all the elements i wanted on there. This beautiful image is part of a lovely set from Nutcrafters called 'pink frosting' (won on their fab blog, many thanks!' The large cupcake, cherry and sentiment is part of the set too and there's lots more still. Coloured with Promarkers, old digi papers from Kaboodle Doodles (love these and used so many times on my past projects), gingham ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, flowers from Marianne Die cuts, leaves too, card candy for the middles. Paper piecing on the large cupcake and strips of strong acetate to create that floating effect.



Challenges entered are...Nutcrafters 'pink theme', as are most I'm entering today, Jelly Park 'pink & ribbon', Cute Cute Thursday 'time for cake', Inky Impression 'breast cancer/ monochrme', Pretty little Ribbon 2nd entry 'anything goes', Crazy 'pink as are Incy Wincy, Lexis creations, Party time tuesdays 'breast awareness', Simon Says 'sparkle & bling', Papertake Weekly 3rd entry. Some new ones to me are Celebrate the occasion, Touched By a butterfly and My sheri crafts. Hope that your Sunday is going well, it's flown by.
