Cupcake Challenge - Round & Round

Good morning! Ok, it's March 1st so hopefully we shall see the start of Spring soon, I can't wait to see the back of this horrible weather! In the meantime, to keep you busy we have another challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges for you! This week the lovely Denise has chosen the theme "Round & Round", so we'd like to see lots of circles on your cards/projects! My hubby wanted to help make the card as he had the idea of doing a footie card, not bad really for a beginner (well, he did have a bit of help from me) ...



Obviously the colours on the card had to be BLACK & WHITE (Newcastle is his favourite team), so this fit perfectly with the challenge over at Fab 'n Funky. Here's some details of what was used...

  • Footballer Stamp - Sugar Nellie
  • Colouring - Promarkers
  • Scarf Stamp - Woodware (sentiment is handwritten)
  • Paper - Dovecraft (I've had this for ages)
  • Ribbon/Brads from stash


We're sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp, who are offering one lucky winner $20 to spend in their online store plus free shipping!

The other girls on the Design Team have made some really cute cards this week, pop over to their blogs to take a peek and leave a little comment, I'm sure they'd really appreciate it. You can see all the DT cards over at Cupcake!
