Cupcake Craft Challenge #69 GDT Card

Good morning blogging friends! Well it's the start of a new week, and the start of a new crafty challenge for me. I have been asked by Donna from Cupcake Craft Challenge to be a Guest Designer for the month of December, isn't that fab?! Of course I had no second thoughts about accepting and being part of this fabulous team for the festive month! My first challenge as GDT member is a festive one, "Sing a Christmas Carol", you need to choose your favourite Christmas carol and use it in your card design. Here's mine...

I just love "The Twelve Days of Christmas" carol, and thought this challenge was the ideal excuse to use my Partridge in a Pear Tree Penny Black stamp! If you can't see the image very well click on the card and you'll get a closer look. I've kept the card fairly simple, just the scalloped border (used my SU border punch and Crop-a-Dile for holes) and ribbon and the little heart buttons for detail. The papers are old ones from Dovecraft "Tis the Season". For a change, I've coloured the image with w/c pencils.

This week the challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, and you can win a fabulous $20 gift voucher and free shipping for the online shop, think of all those yummy goodies you could buy! So why not get into the Christmas Spirit with us and have a go?! Pop over to the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog to see all the other beautiful DT creations for more wonderful inspiration!

I'm entering this card in the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which is Christmas for the Girls (just love the image of this little partridge knitting).

Finally thanks again to the girls at Cupcake Craft Challenge for giving me the chance to be part of their team!
