Cupcake Craft Challenge #87 Red & White

Hello blogging friends! Today at Cupcake Craft Challenge we have a colour combo for you and as it's St George's Day this week guess what the colours are - yup Red & White! I have to confess I cheated a little as I did use a bit of blue too in my DT card, I hope I'm forgiven! You can make any type of card, layout, box etc but you must use Red & White! It'd be lovely to see some patriotic projects, but anything goes really! My card was for my nephew's birthday... he's a Liverpool fan (a geordie one at that... shame on him)! I've used stamps from 'It's a Mans World' stamp set from Papermania, coloured with Promarkers and decoupaged a little to give dimension, and the yummy papers are from The Creative Cottage.
I'm entering my card for the Fab 'n Funky challenge which is to 'use a neglected stamp' I have to say all my male stamps are neglected and also the Stamp Something challenge which is 'Something Layered'... I've layered the papers, ribbon and parts of the footballer.


We have a fab sponsor for our challenge this week, KLM Digi Stamps, who are offering 3 digi images to one lucky random winner! On top of that the other DT girls have really stepped up to the mark this week with some super projects... all so very different but all stunning... I think I'm getting to really like this colour combo... and not just for Christmas cards! I hope you can join us this week, and don't forget St George's Day on Friday 23rd April!
