Gingham & Roses

Good morning! Well I spent some time over the weekend doing a spot of gardening, isn't it lovely at this time of year!? So green and lucious and lots of lovely flowers! I bought myself some rose bushes on Saturday, and have planted them along the side of my house... I'll have to take some pictures and share them with you all! They smell so lovely too... the roses that is, not the manure I used to plant them in!

That brings me nicely to this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges... the fab theme 'Gingham & Roses' has been chosen by Lisa our Choose The Challenge Competition winner. Lisa will be Guest Designing for us this week, and will also be choosing the Cupcake Cuties. Our prize this week is a lovely Shabby Beautiful Download Kit from Cupcake Card Craft. Don't forget we also have our monthly Icing on the Cupcake prize, this month sponsored by Crafts U Love!

For my card I've used this week's digi freebie from Bugaboo Stamps, coloured with Promarkers. The lovely gingham papers are from The Creative Cottage, and the little roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts. You should really pop by the Cupcake blog to see all the pretty creations my DT buddies have created. I'm entering my card for the challenge at:
Catch the Bug Challenge - Anything Goes
Stamp Something - Digi Day
Totally Papercrafts - Recipe (1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments - Roses, Pearls, Ribbon)
Thanks for popping by today! Happy Creating!
