Cupcake Craft Challenge # 71...A Time For Celebration

Good morning everyone...we still have lots of snow here and it's blimming freezing...I didn't venture out yesterday as it was just too cold and I opted for the warmth and comfort of staying indoors lol!

It's Cupcake Craft Challenge day and this is our last challenge of 2009...our theme this week is A Time For Celebration...a fairly easy theme to see us through the Christmas holidays and I opted to make a card for my niece who passed her driving test first time...congratulations are so clever!

Design Papers : Sweet Shoppe Designs (Rubbing Noses)
Digi image : Sketching Stamper (Mini Love)
Blue Card Stock : SU!
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Embellishments : Ribbon, flower brad and pearls from my craft box
Tools : X-Cut Flower Punch
Circular Sentiment : Created on the PC

I hope the next few days aren't too stressful for you all with last minute shopping and bits to be done...not long to go now!
