I managed to get my card done for Cupcake Craft Challenges in Time,
But also i combined this challenge with the Basic Grey (I'll never win anything anyways, just do it for fun, Hence breaking the rules as you need to do "new" work when trying for the prizes)

Here is my Card for my DT work for Cupcake Craft Challenges
& BasicGrey Challenges
(Like Cupcake Craft Challenges, Basic Grey is another Blog i have designed)

This weeks Cupcake challenge 8 - is a Sketch
Basic Rules you can flip it turn it etc , as long as it still looks like the sketch.

This week Crafty krafts is Sponsoring Cupcake Challenges
1 Lucky Person that joins in will get a chance to win
1 WonderBoard
1 6x6 Paper Pack

Onto my Card for this weeks challenges

This card was a challenge in its own Rights its an A4 Card,
I brought some 8x8, A4 & A4 folded longways cards among others a while ago,
And i thought they would be great, I find them a little hard work as they are so big, its hard to get them right, not to over do it or under do it.
Once again i have used the Wonderboard for the Embossed Lines going across the bottom half

Recipe i have used,
Stamps: Spiral Whisper
Ink/Colour: Stazon, Faber-Castell Polycromos
Paper: BasicGrey - Offbeat/Light Hearted, Offbeat/Eccentric
Cardstock:Bazzill Brown Cardstock & A4 White Cardblank
Ribbon: Brown/Anitas, Making Memories/White, Blue from stash
Accessories: Metal Embellishment, Ashesive Pearls, DCWV Chipboard Letters, BasicGrey Infuse Button, Flowers from stash, Bead from stash, Nestabilities Large Oval, Die Cut Messages, Wonderboard

This is lovely :)

Just a note: I am in Adelaide also and the clock which shows Adelaide time is an hour out - we changed our clocks for daylight saving. So if it says 12 midday it is actually 1 pm. Dont want anyone to miss out over daylight saving.
