Cupcake Challenge 40

This week for Cupcake Challenge 40, the lovely Donna created a sketch for us to follow for the challenge.

I'm not too happy with this card, my hayfever is awful and everything just seemed to go wrong while I was putting it together, I'm just not in the right frame of mind at the moment!!!

Anyway, for my DT card I have used a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girl stamp which is coloured with distress inks. The papers are from K & Co and I have used my swiss dots folder for the embossing.

Card/Paper: White, blue and pink card, K & Co - Sparkly Sweet
Stamp: Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girls - Just a girl
Colouring: Distress inks - tattered rose, walnut stain, broken china, worn lipstick
Embellishments: American crafts ribbon, primas, jewels, stickles
Tools: Cuttlebug, swiss dots folder, fiskars threading water punch, water brush.
Thanks for looking x

  9. Hay fever or not, its a gorjuss card!!! Love it. I love the swiss dots on that yellow layer! I think it is just darling. WTG!

    hope you are feeling better soon with the hay fever. I used to get it, and then outgrew it. It could be because I live in a cement world of the city. (We live in the Chicago suburbs. Not many trees or green spaces by our house.
    I think I may rather hay fever. Cement is hot and impersonal after a while!
