Cupcake Craft Challenge 'World Cup Wonders'

Hello peeps! I'm feeling a little better today, hubby is taking good care of me ;) Thanks so much for your Get Well Wishes, it means a lot!
It's been a while since I blogged and so it's about time I put a new card on my blog and so here it is! This week at Cupcake Craft Challenge it's my turn to choose the theme and so I've gone with 'World Cup Wonders' to correspond with the World Cup Final 2010 on Saturday! Personally I think Germany will win (although as they beat us I don't want them to). Anyway, back to the challenge, I'd like you to do a card or a project with a sporting theme, not just football but any sport you like! This week at Cupcake we're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are offering a $20 gift voucher plus free shipping to one lucky random winner. And don't forget that I'll be on the look out to choose my Top 5, can't wait to see what you come up with! Pop over to the Cupcake blog and take a peek at the fab cards the other DT girls have made, and if you have time leave a little comment, we really do appreciate them!

For my card I've used a cute digi image from Di's Digi Downloads called 'On the bench'. I've coloured with Promarkers, used my Cuttlebug to emboss the herring bone pattern, added ribbon from an old medal, a charm, some football brads and some eyelets. The sentiment is from my blogging friend Lyndsey Marie, one of her own designs. I'm entering this card into the challenges at Stamp Something 'Something with the colours of YOUR flag' - mines the Union Jack, I Love Digi 'Emboss It' (sorry to read this challenge blog is ending), Dare U 2 Digi Stamp 'The Great Outdoors' and also the challenge at Meljen's which is RED WITE & BLUE.

Happy Crafting!

Fantastic card Shelly, I love the colour combo and the gorgeous little footyball brads and eyelets. Great idea to recycle the ribbon from an old medal...a really fab card! Hope you are feeling much better now and a little less fragile :) Donna x
