A Bit of DIY

Do you fancy doing a bit of DIY? Well not real DIY silly, crafty DIY of course. Our challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges this week is Make Your Own Backing Paper... now isn't that better than fighting with the O/H and getting stuck from head to toe in wall paper!?

My card is very girly this week, I have to admit it's not my usual style but I really love the colours! The little kitty image is a Papermania one I got a while back and didn't use until now. My DIY backing paper and border in the middle of the card are done using an Anna Griffin clear stamp from A Scrap Affair, I used Colorbox Pigment Ink (the colour is Mint I think). I finished off with a cute charm, some pearls and Craftwork Cards card candy.

I'm entering the challenge at:
Penny Black & More @ Allsorts - Happy Birthday
Do You Stack Up - Ribbon
Craft Your Days Away - Buttons or Bows
Stamps & Fun = Creativity - Pearls

This week our sponsor at Cupcake is Simon Says Stamp, who are giving away a $15 gift voucher to spend in the online store! Our monthly sponsor is Polka Doodles who are offering not one but two Simply Sweet CD's for two lucky winners! For all the details, and a chance to see all the wonderful DIY the other DT girls have been getting up to, pop over to the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog!
