Cupcake Challenge 59...Cute as a Bug

Good morning everyone, here we go with the start of another week, I'm hoping mine won't be as busy as last week but you never know in the Barber household....there's always!

We have a lovely theme this week over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog.....the theme is CUTE AS A BUG...and we are incredibly lucky to be sponsored by Bee Crafty Merrigan gave the DT some images to use and they have come up with some amazing creations so pop over if you fancy a look! One lucky winner will be able to chose 3 single images or 1 complete set from the Bee Crafty shop...shame I can't enter lol! I have used Whimsical Girl & Bird on my card and coloured with PM's and I inked the edges of the image before mounting onto some SU! card stock! The design papers are a digi download from Sweet Shoppe Designs and the kit is called 'Cheeky Girl!'

The swirls were cut on the Cricut Expression and the ribbon, lace, flowers, brad and spacer are all from my craft stash! Now here is a little secret for you to keep...I 'borrowed' the little ladybug embellie from Sophie's craft box.....but sshhhhh please don't tell her lol!

I'm sorry I haven't visited some of your blogs over the last week...I plan to rectify that tonight :) have a fab Monday and thanks for visiting me today :)

Hi Donna, what a beautiful card. I know you've got good taste as you used the same image as me lol! Your colouring is stunning and the papers and yummy. Loving all the details. Hugs, Denise x

Caryn said...

Erm, when you say "borrow", does that mean you intend to give it back?? Don't you actually mean you STOLE it?! lol I won't tell her, promise, although if she's anything like my Sophie, she'll notice it's missing and rip it off the card when you're not looking, hee hee.

Love the filigree cut-out behind the main image, it looks fab.
