Cupcake Challenge 142

Hello everyone, its Monday once again and this week over on Cupcake Challenge 142 we have a theme of in the garden chosen by the one and only Fluffster Faye! Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs and they are giving us the fab prize of four images of your choice! I am also entering this card for the following challenges; this week's Stamp Something has a theme of anything goes and this week's Papertake Challenge has a theme of punches/die cuts.

For my card this week I have used Lizzy with Daisy from Create4fun and she is coloured with copics. I did the sky background with broken china distress ink and it is the first time I have tried to make a cloudy sky.... I must make a note to self...the next time you try something new, have a good practice first and don't launch straight into it!!!! I think I managed to salvage it though!!!!

The DP is from Colorbok, it is a new pad that my MIL brought back from the US for me and its lush, very pretty and lovely soft, fresh colours. The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers from Wild Orchid. The little tabs have been made with a spellbinders fancy tag die and the sentiment is from WOJ.

This month our icing on the cupcake prize is sponsored by Crafts U Love who are giving us a £15 voucher as a prize, and all you have to do is enter at least one of our challenges this month to be in with a chance to win.
