Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge 48 - Hip NOT to be Square


There's a new challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studio today. It's the turn of the other half of the design team, and they've come up with some gorgeous creations. The theme is Hip NOT to be Square, so any other shape cards with a MP image are fine. You can find Michelle's images at her Etsy store or at Bunny Zoes Craft shop. You might even be lucky and find a freebie on Michelle's pade at CDAC.



I've used Carmen Cupcake this week, as she seemed the perfect choice to go with a Cupcake shaped card. I've coloured her with Promarkers, and added Stickles to the dots on her dress, then cut her out. I found a cupcake template in my stash. The base is made with brown pearl card and scored to look like a cake case. The top has been made with brown pearl card as well but covered on the front with dotty paper by MME. The strawberry is a die cut also by MME, to which I've added spots of Stickles. I've also added Stickles around the edge of the cake. The sentiment was a freebie from TLC Creations, which has some fab word art. I've die cut it and then inked the edges with Distress inks, and finally added a little Stickles.


I'm entering my Cupcake card into these challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 31 - Step away from the square
Pollycraft Challenge 64 - Anything Goes
Polka Doodles Challenge 39 - Fancy or interesting folding
Karber Weekly Challenge 8 - Go Digital
