Out of my comfort zone


Today's new Creative Inspirations challenge has taken me right out of my comfort zone - I hardly ever make any cards that are not square or at least rectangular but the challenge chosen by our lovely Dawn, who is stepping down from the DT, is - Anything but square or rectangle!

I thought about this until I almost ran out of time but finally came up with a cupcake shape to base the card on. I used Distress Inks to colour and stamp on the cupcake case and used coloured card edged with Distress Ink for the icing. The little mouse is a digi stamp which I bought & printed out before my lovely husband accidently deleted all my digi stamps so I'm afraid I don't have any details on where it came from (if anyone can help, I'd be delighted to add the credit to my post). The image was coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment is Stampin Up.

Our sponsor this week is Fantastic Ribbons who are giving away a huge bag of assorted buttons to our lucky challenge winner.

I am also entering my card for the following challenges:
Polka Doodles - Shaped Card
Dare U 2 Digi - Shaped Card
Bee Crafty - Anything goes
Stamp Something - Something Cute
Paper Romance - Furry Friends
