Cupcake Craft Challenge # 149...Single Layer Card

Good morning everyone...I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...the weather was fab for the school feté and can you believe Sophie won a Pandora necklace in the raffle! How lucky is she won't let me borrow it lol! I still haven't managed to shift my chest infection...I'm back on steroids for another 2 weeks and I've also got to take a tablet to reduce the inflammation in my lungs...I'm getting fed up with it all now as it's been nearly 4 weeks! Fingers crossed it clears soon!

Well today's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges has caused a bit of a stir with the Cupcakes...our lovely Rachel chose the theme of a SINGLE LAYER CARD...I'm surprised you didn't hear me screaming with frustration however I think I got there in the end! I did really struggle with this challenge and this definitely wasn't the only version of a single layer card I tried and failed at making lol! Well done though Rachel for making this a proper challenge and the chance to try something that is completely out of my comfort zone!

The Cupcakes have done a much better job than me and you can find all their inspirational makes over on the Cupcake challenge blog!

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamps this week and they are offering a fabby $20 Gift Certificate for the winner (does not include shipping)
