Cupcake Craft Challenge # 52 - Sketch & Colour Theme

Good morning, I'm pleased to report we had the bestest weather over the weekend and even better still not one drop of rain! I had a bit of a lazy weekend but got plenty of crafting done which means I am a very happy bunny going to work today!

We have a new challenge for your today over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge's Tammy's turn to pick the theme and she has created a brilliant sketch for us to follow and it has a twist in that you have to use the colour palette that is on her sketch! I had a bit of a slow start to this card but once I got going it all came together really well. I have rotated the sketch for my card as it fit my image better this way! The DT have created some fantastic cards if anyone gets stuck for inspiration and I hope you'll join us for this weeks challenge! You'll want to tune into Cupcake Crafts next Monday...its our 1st birthday and we have lots of goodies to give away and all of the DT are involved in the celebrations...I'm so excited I could crush a grape lol!
