The challenge this week at Cupcake Craft Challenge is to add 5 different embellishments to your creation. You can use more than one flower or brad for example, but it will only count once. I'm going to enter a flower tag. The 5 different embellishments are flowers, rik rak ribbon, eyelets, a brad, and a butterfly metal charm. I really enjoyed making this. I cut my own flower out of chipboard, stuck PM flowery paper on, added Prima flowers, a Dovecraft brad and a butterfly on a petal. I punched eyelets into the ends of all the petals and added some rik rak ribbon into one of them. Shaded the ends of the petals with sepia versafine.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
