Cupcake Craft and Our Creative Corner Challenges





The theme this week on The Cupcake Craft Challenge is 'Inspiration' We are asked to create a card with the beautiful photo as our inspiration :-) I have tried to keep the colour scheme similar, warm yellows and cream.I also sort of followed shapes, the girl is a vase of flowers and the eggs are lemons :-) I followed the lovely sketch on Our Creative Corner Challenge.

I used a 2 of the stamps in the new Whiff of Joy spring collection, it's the 1st time I've inked them and think they're gorgeous :-) The papers are papermania and cordinations which have been cuttle bugged and sanded. The flower is made of various bits and the text was printed on the computer.
Also there is a DT call on the Cupcake Challenge so I am entering this :-)
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
