Cupcake Craft Challenge - Going Green!

Good Morning! Well Spring has finally arrived I think, the weather is just GORGEOUS! Can you believe it's even 20°c here! The sun is shining and the sky is the most beautiful blue... I just love the start of Spring when the birds are singing and the new shoots are beginning to show their green tips! Speaking of green, that's the theme chosen by Kathrin for the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week "Going Green"! We'd like you to include the colour green on your projects, whether they're to celebrate St. Patrick's Day this week or not. It's entirely up to you as long as you use lots of GREEN! I've done a St. Patty's Day card for my friend who lives in Paris, although she's an Irish girl! Hope she likes it! Here's what I used:
  • Digi Stamp Image - Paper Make Up Stamps
  • Colouring Medium - Promarkers
  • Paper - 3ndy Papir
  • Embossing - Cuttlebug
  • Flowers - Prima
  • Raffia - Bunny Zoe's Crafts
  • Pearls - Quixotic Paperie
  • Buttons from stash (white one is pinched from hubby's shirt)


This week at Cupcake we're lucky enough to be sponsored by Stitchy Stamps who are offering 3 Digi stamps to the lucky winner! You even get to choose your stamps! The other girls on the Design Team have made some lovely projects so pop over to check out all the inspiration! Don't forget to leave a comment to show some appreciation for their work!

I shall be entering my card into a few challenges; Colour Create Challenge would like you to use the colours Mint, Chocolate and Cream on your creations (I just loved their inspiration piccy this week...so yummy), Stamp Something are asking for something GREEN & CREAM, Totally Paper Crafts would like us to use Things With Wings, Fussy & Fancy Challenge want to see GREEN and Flutter By Wednesdays celebrate their 100th challenge, an open one but you have to include something fluttery (in my case a fairy)!

Well, hope you have a lovely day, and that the sun is smiling where you are!
