Cupcake Craft Challenge 132 - Pink Polka Dots

Today at Cupcake Craft Challenge we're running the challenge chosen by Em who won our 'What's the Challenge? You Decide!' competition back in January! Em has chosen PINK POLKA DOTS... luuurvly! So onto my card... well it was for my friend who gave birth to a beautiful baby girl two week's ago... Alexandra. I've gone a bit different this time, no coloured images etc but instead I've used elements from my Taylored Expressions stamps 'Tweet Hearts'... these stamps are so lovely! And so versatile! Everything from the main image to the little leaves is stamped from this one set. The paper (which I love) was a freebie from Marisa Lerin (Pixelscrapper), you can find it HERE. The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley stamp set, I coloured the stamped image with my Promarkers. The frames were cut using Nestabilities. Here's a view of the inside of the card...

This week we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are giving away a $20 gift certificate to one lucky winner! We also have our monthly Icing On The Cupcake prize, which is sponsored by Wild Rose Studio who are offering 2 stamps from their 2011 Spring Collection! Pop over to the Cupcake blog to see what lovely creations my other DT buddies have made!

Ta carte est parfaite pour la naissance de la petite fille de ton amie ! Elle est douce et j'adore les petits noeuds, les couleurs sont comme je les aime (le rose, j'adore le rose !).
