This week on Cupcake challenge is a sketch by Rosetta
You can turn it sideways, or change the dimensions, but we want to see the original design. In the card I would like you also to use the colour BROWN; be it in the embellishments, Paper or Image, or in all of them. It is up to you to decide where. Also I would like you to have AT LEAST 1 scalloped edge in your creation.

This week its something a little different, a picture to use as inspiration. You can interperate the inspirational picture in any way you wish as it is there just for inspiration. Maybe you just want to use the colours or maybe the design or something totally off the wall it's your choice.

I cut a strip of card and coloured it with water pencils so I could blend it all together, I then hand drew some twigs with berries with sakura pens, added my topper which I mat and layered and then added flowers in the same pastel colours .

Backing Paper and Topper from Dreams of Tranquility Cd by Ooh la la Creations based on the beautiful artwork of Jonathon Earl Bowser

Present from a friend

4 weeks ago my friend sent me a little crystal angel, that same day we got a phone call to say that our cd's that my daughter and I design had been accepted for a craft website and live web show and if they did well a slot on Best Direct TV, we have not looked back since and our craft cd's are doing brilliantly, so our little angel worked her magic

The following week she sent me a beautiful Swarovski Crystal star and another angel for my friend and my son, the day my son received his he got the offer of a job he applied for and my friend won on the lottery
Thank you Di for sending us a little piece of magic

Buttons and The Two of Us 2 challenges in 1

I started this card for the CCT Challenge ' The 2 of us' http://cutecardthursday.blogspot.com/
The image has been decoupaged but not too high as I dont like my cards too 3D that I cant get them in the envelope
I love these spotty buttons with ribbon

I then popped along to see what Papertake Weekly challenge
was and discovered it was buttons so here I have 2 challenges in one

Papers and images from kiddiwinks cd


Today I decided to have a go at ATC's again inspired by my wonderful find last week. The pyramid decoupage and backing papers are from Passion for Fashion cd http://www.ooh-la-la-creations/

I also used one of my precious tassels and gems
The Atc is for the Arty Girlz challenge Vintage


I have had a wonderful week we decided to visit Cognac with our friends and on the way home stopped off at a Brocante/Antique shop just as we were leaving I spotted this beautiful pack of cards,infact it was the box that caught my eye and it was not until I opened it I discovered these beautiful Oriental playing cards inside
This reminded me I had not made any ATC's for a while

Ooh La La Challenge 10# Acetate

The challenge this week is Acetate and I was inspired to make
this card by Ann design team member for Ooh la la Creations
I so enjoyed making this as it was a first for me with acetate and the tutorial Ann has put on the blog was very easy to follow
I also managed to shrink an insert so that it fitted inside the card so that it all matched
