CPS Sketches & Cupcake Craft



Sorry, not the best picture again - I really want a daylight lamp! This one is for CPS Sketches following their sketch, and Cupcake Craft challenge which is 'distressing'.

This is for my son's 7th birthday, and for once I'm really happy with it - I know he's going to love it :o) I've used images from Mo's Digital Pencil and downloaded papers from Designs By Krista. I've used a large 8" square card, matted everything onto plain red card, lightly distressed all the papers and then used distress inks on the edges. The nestie circles are the same red card with lots of glamour dust! The sentiment is computer generated. It's not perfect, and I can see some things that could have been better, but it'll make Morgan smile and that's the main thing!

Lisa this is a fab card hun, the piccy looks great, Morgan will love it. Re the daylight lamp lots of experienced crafters tell me not to waste money on a daylight lamp, a daylight bulb for a lamp is a much cheaper option and works just the same
