Cupcake Craft Challenge # 134...Monochromatic


Wow what a fab weekend weatherwise...beautiful sunshine both days and quite warm too! We had lunch out on Saturday and it was great to sit outdoors and enjoy the warm spring weather...pretty cold overnight though...boo hoo!

Seeing as Monday has come around again there is a new challenge at Cupcake...my incredibly talented teamie Delphine has chosen the theme for this week which is...MONOCHROMATIC...now I have to confess I always struggle with monochromatic cards so I took the easy option and did some paper piecing...I love these quirky flowers and they are soooo easy to use for a quickie card if you need one!

We are lucky enough to have two sponsors this week...
First up is...Prairie Fairy Designs with a prize of 5 digi images to the winner!

Second up is...Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn and they are offering a £10 gift voucher. They have also provided a 10% discount code for all Cupcake readers to use in their store and the code is...CUPCAKEBLOG...this will give you 10% off your order but only for the week that FFSB are sponsoring Cupcake!

Our monthly sponsor for March is Wild Rose Studio and they are offering two stamps to the winner from their Spring 2011 collection...piccy's of the stamps are over on the Cupcake challenge blog!

WOWzers! Donna, I'm just loving this beauty! The subtle tones of the paper is so scrumptious and the ribbon really is bold over the folded ribbon; what a great pattern, wonderful texture.

I see I've missed a load of gorgeous cards - wow, I just love seeing all your crafty goodness displayed so wonderfully as it is always so inspiring!
