My DT card for Forever Friends challenge 39 - June 25th


Here is my DT card for our new challenge over at Forever Friends
Our challenge this fortnight is "USA inspired"- we can't wait to see your interpretations of this.
We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps for this challenge


I decided to use the colours of the USA flag. I made a step card using Go Kreate XXL dies, adding the cupcake paper before cutting and scoring to make the step shape.

I have used a freebie digi by GTC called cherry cupcake on the right hand side, I coloured with the following Promarkers and Copics, Berry Red, E27 and B66, adding irridescent glitter to the icing. 

I have printed off a freebie birthday digi ticket from the lovely Gerda over at Stamp Fairy although I did recolour it first from black to blue in PSE and punched a little hole in so I could thread some eskimo wool through. I have also used white and blue Card Candi from Craftwork Cards at the bottom.

Please come over and join in with our USA inspired challenge over at Forever Friends, just remember you must have a bear or animal on your entry. Click Here for further details and to enter.
