Craft Your Days Away #20 DT card

Is Blogger playing now? Don't know about you, but I really missed my daily fix of catching up with all of your new crafting makes. Looks like Blogger is still catching up posting some of the posts that were "lost".

Anyway, onto today's challenge at Craft your Days Away and we have the results of our DT call over on the challenge blog.  Today's challenge has been set by DT member Lesley who has chosen a great challenge for you:

White + One Colour

Pop over to the challenge blog to see what the DT have made to inspire you for this challenge and to meet our new DT members.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Heart Song Designs - they have some beautiful images in their digi shop but I especially liked the Cupcake Tier image that I used.

I've kept my card fairly plain and simple for this challenge and chose Lilac as my "+ one colour" and not a speck of glitter in sight!  Here's what I've used:

Image - Cupcake Tier by Heart Song Designs, coloured with pro markers
Polka dot paper - Back to Basics by Dovecraft
Embossed white card using Cuttlebug embossing folder (with a lilac ink pad lightly brushed over to add a dash of colour)
Ribbon and button from stash

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Fabulous Friday - Use ribbon or twine
Fab 'n' Funky - Buttons and Bows
Divas by Design - Anything goes
Crafty Creations - Anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafty - Anything goes
Sew Many - Anything goes
Make it colourful - dotty background

Thanks for looking, fingers crossed - hope this posts okay Mr Blogger!
