Cupcake Craft Challenge # 56...Red, White & Blue

Good morning everyone...firstly can I just say a whopping big thank you to everyone who left good luck messages for the girls yesterday...they twirled their batons & flags and shook their pom-poms brilliantly and they were awarded lots of first places...they came away with a real haul of medals and trophies and they were tired but very happy! I hope to post some photos in the next couple of days for those of you who want to see them :)

It's an exciting day over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog...not only do we have a fab new challenge for you but Simon Says Stamp have agreed to sponsor us once a month and they are offering one lucky winner the chance to win a $20 gift voucher to spend on their website plus they are providing free shipping...thank you to Heidi at Simon Says...we are so pleased to have them sponsoring Cupcake Crafts!

The theme for this weeks challenge is a colour theme...we want to see Red...White & Blue on your cards! For my card I have used a gorgeous new digi image from the Digi Stamp Boutique and this little beauty is called Becky. There are 3 different images available and you can purchase her here! The design papers were a free digi download that I downloaded yonks ago and I've just been to check the download details in the file and I don't have them stored :( all I know is that the collection is called 'Bugs.' The sentiment is Penny Black and the red ribbon, gingham ribbon and card candy are from my craft stash! Flowers were created with an X-Cut Punch!

Sorry this post is a bit long winded today...I didn't mean to ramble honestly lol! TFL :)
