Cupcake Craft Challenge #54...A Shaped Card & My Blog Hop Candy Winner

Morning everyone...boy was it hot yesterday...it was sooooo hot & stuffy in the venue where the baton twirling competition was held...it was a very long day but the girls did really well considering the heat! Congratulations 'Amethyst Flames'...you girls really rock and I am so proud of you all!

Its time for another Cupcake Craft Challenge....we had a rocking good week for our 1st birthday celebrations and we were staggered at how many entries we received...if you want to see who won the prizes donated by our sponsors and a full list of all the winners from the design team blog hop then pop over to Cupcake where you can view them all!

The winner of my blog hop candy is
Lynda at Lynda Loves Crafting
Congratulations Lynda, please drop me an email ( link on my sidebar) with your home address so that I can get your candy posted out this week!

Phew....now that's done....onto this weeks challenge which is A SHAPED CARD...that's anything but a square! I had no trouble thinking about the shape of my card...I've used my trusty Cricut Expression to cut this scalloped circle and the cartridge I used was the 'Wildcard' cart. The actual size of this card is 5½" round and I cut two cards from one 12"x12" sheet of cardstock! I've used this adorable little digi image from Bee Crafty...she is from the Whimsical Girl collection and I think she is so cute and perfectly suited to this style of card! I coloured my image with Promarkers and I found the design paper lurking in my scraps box. I used a small X-Cut punch for the flowers and I added some little gems to the centres. The sentiment was created on the PC and the ribbon is from my craft stash! Thanks for visiting me today :)

when I saw this yesterday, it made me want to make a circle card! I really like this one Donna. I not sure if it's those cute little flowers or the cute little image but this just really jumped out at me! Love the way you encircle your image with the sentiment and your sponging...just wonderful!

Blessings, Maria
