Guest Designing for CES

I am very proud to be Guest Designing for CES Challenges this month! Thanks Emma, for letting me join you. :)

This weeks challenge has been chosen by Amy and is Your Favourite Colour Combo. My favourite colour combo is as fickle as I am, so I decided to use my actual favourite colour, yellow, with the colour that everyone thinks is my favourite colour, pink!

I made this card for my dear friend, La Chic, using a Sketch Saturday Sketch, forgetting that we'd be several sketches along by the time this card saw the light of day. I am such a Fluffhead sometimes.

This little fella and his cupcake caused me a bit of trouble. This is the fifth attempt and the cake icing is paper pieced as I Fluffed that up and couldn't get the pink right on the fourth try too! So, he gets a picture all of his own.

Anyway, if you want a chance to win a £10 Gift Voucher (excluding postage) to spend in Crafty Emma's Store, you'd better get a wriggle on, but before you do, hope on over to CES Challenges and see the fab work from the DT.

Have a great weekend.

Congrats on guest designing! So exciting! Great card too! Love the colors and that adorable image! The 5th time worked, because the coloring is great! Hate when I have to do it so many times too, but nice when you finally get the results you want! You wouldn't know it is paper pieced! It looks great!
