Cupcake Crafts Challenge #41 – Erin’s number 2’s!!

It was DT member Erin’s turn to pick the challenge this week at Cupcake Crafts and she chose to do a recipe. This was inspired by the fact that her little girl is turning 2 so her challenge is based on the number 2!! I have to admit when she said she wanted to see our number 2’s I did titter somewhat (mind of a 2 year old myself sometimes!). So this is what she asked for:

“Today’s challenge is all about the number 2! It’s my daughter’s second birthday, so I thought that would be a great way to celebrate!!! So in your sample please include 2 colors(plus a neutral), 2 shapes on the card, and 2 pieces of ribbon. Feel free to add any other embellies too:) Looking forward to seeing your 2’s!!! Have fun!”

For my 2 colours I went for red and pastel blue, taken from the gorgeous Stampin Up! Summer Picnic paper which I seem to be using on EVERY card these days!! I have cheated a bit with a wee touch of green on the grass and there is green on the paper too but if you pretend that’s not there then there are just the two colours!! My image is from one of my new Pink Gem stamps, Sprinkles on a toadstool. She’s gorgeous isn’t she? The scalloped border is my Martha Stewart punch and I have also punched some daisies for my other shape (as well as the rectangle mat for the image). The image is coloured with promarkers (poppy and berry red on the toadstool and pastel blue and cornflower blue on the fairy. Yellow, lemon, canary, gold, and mustard on the hair and satin and blush on the toadstool base). The wings and crown have been glamour dusted with crystal and gold respectivley!!
The other DT girls have done a fantastic job as ever this week so pop on over for a wee look. Hope you can join us in the challenge.

Speaking of challenges, it is now just one more sleep until the Passion For Promarkers challenge blog goes live!! The whole team are just SOOOO excited and can’t wait for it all to kick off tomorrow. If you haven’t been already then please go on over to the blog and just have a look at the fabulous prizes on offer for this first challenge. To enter all you need to do is incluse at least one promarker colour on your creation and you could be in with a chance of winning. Hope to see as many of you as possible.
