Cupcake Craft Challenge 160...The Darkside



Morning my lovelies…I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend...thank you to everyone who entered my candy giveaway that finished yesterday evening...you can check out the winner here!

I made this card for Sophie to wish her good luck on her first day of secondary school…hence the good luck sentiment! She was thrilled to bits with it and she loved the black and purple colour combo…me thinks she is a bit of a goth at heart but she still loved this darling lil Punk Rocker Gillian and the image (digi) was very kindly supplied by this week’s Cupcake sponsor Prairie Fairy (thank you PF).


The gorgeous Delphine has chosen this week’s Cupake theme of THE DARKSIDE! Now before you panic and worry that we have a Star Wars theme for you fear not...we don’t want you to use anything that remotely resembles the Star Wars universe but what we are asking for is a colour theme of BLACK & PURPLE!

You can stamp onto a neutral base and use skin tones and hair (unless you want purple or black hair) but otherwise your creation must be purple and black! The DT really enjoyed playing with this challenge and they have created some amazing cards for inspiration over on the Cupcake blog so pop over and prepared to be wowed!

This weeks sponsor is Prairie Fairy and they are offering a lovely £15 Gift Certificate and Septembers Icing on the Cupcake sponsor is Bunny Zoe's and they are offering this month's lucky winner a £15 Gift Voucher to spend in their on-line store!

Great card, love the cute image and the gingham papers is great. Love the punched border and bow detail too.
Finally got round to cathing up with your blog today - think I have finally caught up with everyone now, love all your new creations that I have missed, lovely cute and adorable images as usual. Although I have to say really liked the butterfly card looked stunning.
