Cupcake Craft Challenge 105... Blue & Green

Good morning peeps! Last week at Cupcake we celebrated our 2nd Birthday... there were some stunning creations from you, thanks for participating! Don't forget to check on the Cupcake blog to see if you've won one of the fab prizes! And if you're wondering who won my little blog candy, please check out the post below!

Ok, this week at Cupcake it was my turn to chose the challenge theme... I've gone with a colour combo, and I've chosen BLUE & GREEN... I just love these colours! So much so that I've made TWO DT cards for the challenge, here they are...


The 1st card is of course the lovely Tilda from Magnolia... it's been ages since I did a 'Tilda' card! I've used my distress inks around the edge of the background paper... I can't tell you how green my fingers were (not the gardening type lol)! I'm entering this into the Fab n Funky 'Flower Power' challenge and as it's mainly blue I'm entering it for the ABC Challenge, Passion For Promarkers Challenge where you have to use BLUE and the Just Magnolia Challenge 'Let's Get Sentimental'... to use a sentiment on your card. My second card is using this little digi frog from Pollycraft... isn't he just so so cute!? He's a french frog, but you knew that as he has a blue & white stripy jumper lol! I'm entering him into the Stamp Something Digi Day Challenge & Totally Papercrafts 'Summer Fun' challenge. The sentiments that I've used on both of my cards are from our weekly sponsor this week, The Cutting Café, the DT were kindly given these sets to use on our cards. If you join in with our challenge you too could win some fab prizes from The Cutting Café, and from Crafts U Love who are our monthly sponsor!

Now as if that's not enough, we also have a 1000 Followers Candy over at Cupcake up for grabs... and we're not far off that target so check out the candy details HERE! Good Luck!
