Cupcake Challenge

Well it´s my last time as a Guest Designer at 4 Crafty Chicks. It´s  a bit sad, it has been so much fun! But I sure will be back and play along with there fun challenges. This weeks challenge is: Cupcake. Yummy, yummy....

I made this card, it´s very simple but I liked the papers so much so I didn´t want to take the focus of it. I used a paper from Landstoken that I got from my local scrap shop called Scrapbutiken. I love the ribbon that sort of look like a mesh too.  The sticker is an old one from my stash.

Use a doily

Hello Digi Darla fans.....

Hope you all had a good day. I am sorry that I am a bit late posting this time. Had a long day at work and then I had to go to the hospital with my youngest. Nothing serious but enough to get us a bit worried. Now we are all well and safe at home again. 

This week we want to see you using a doily on your card. It can be a pre-made or one you cut out yourself with a die. Anyway we want to see you adding them to your card. Please pop over to Digi Darla Challenge blog and check out the wonderful creations from my team mates.

I used two wonderful digi stamps from Digi Darla to this challenge. One called DigiDarlas Youre So Tweet sent and one called DigiDarlas One Parrot Said To The Other  they both work so well together, dont´t you think?

This is what I made

 Really happy with my colouring this time. Used my ProMarkers and Faber Castell pencils as usual. Also put a bit of green and pink stickles on the birds.

 Bought a lot of pearls on a sheet from my local scrap shop, Scrapbutiken. Used them around the oval diecut. Put my doily in behind the image. This button dressed up with some wonderful material is also from Scrapbutiken. Think it really made the card pop.

Now, pleas come and play with us. You got a big chance to win some great digi stamps from Digi Darla and if you use some on your card your chance will be even bigger!
