Cupcake Craft Challenge #89 - All The 3's

Good morning blogging friends! For those of you living in the UK, I hope you're having a relaxing Bank Holiday weekend (I'm so so jealous cos we don't have Bank Hol Mon here in France)! That's something that I really miss about home :( I used to love having a long weekend!

Anyway, as it's Monday, then it's time for the Cupcake Craft Challenge and this week the challenge has been set by the talented Kathrin who has chosen 'All the 3's' as the theme. We'd like to see cards or projects with 3 flowers, 3 papers and 3 ribbons. I really enjoyed this challenge and went to town with the pastels this week, not to mention my little Tilda who was feeling rather neglected of late! I've used Michele's sketch over at Passion for Promarkers and made my own flowers using my Woodware Daisy Punches and brads as centres. Tilda is of course coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from my stash... these were the very first papers I bought! The sentiment is from a Studio G set, I thought it went well with the image. To be honest this little character kinda reminds me of myself when I was younger... bit of a tomboy but I loved to skip! I'm also entering my card in the Cute Card Thursday challenge which is 'make your own'... in my case flowers.

The challenge this week is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, one lucky random winner will receive a $20 gift voucher plus free shipping! There's some scrummy things in their shop so you won't have any trouble spending this!

Check out the other DT cards for inspiration, as always the girls have come up trumps!

Hiya Shelly, sorry to hear you don't get any bank holidays over there, always presumed the French had lots of public hols. Love the card and pastel colours, the layout is fab too. I might have had the time off but have had no inclination to craft at all -- off to find my mojo..
