Cupcake Challenge 153

Hello everyone, over on Cupcake Challenge 153 we have a theme of how old? and we would like to see creations that include a number. This week we are sponsored by our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp who are giving us a $20 gift certificate as a prize.

We are also welcoming a new Cupcake this week. Maarit has become pat of our team and to welcome her we have some special candy. All you have to do to win is pop over to Maarit's blog and leave her a comment. A winner will be drawn on Saturday.

So, onto my card....I have used one of my Karen Lockhart stamps and it is coloured with copics and I have added flower soft onto the lavender. The DP is by Papercraft 4 you and the bunched of lavender go perfectly with this stamp. The embossing has been done with a Joy Crafts stencil called daisy and the punched edge with an MS punch. The sentiment was computer generated and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

This month Cupcake is three so we have three fabby prizes for our icing on the cupcake competition. We are sponsored by Crafts U Love who are giving us a £15 gift voucher, Mo's Digital Pencil who are giving us a $10 gift certificate and finally, Sew Sweet are also giving us a £10 gift certificate. All you have to do is enter at least one of our challenges this month to be in with a chance to win.
