Cupcake Kind of Day!

Hi everyone ... happy Monday to you all! This is the first of many cards I will be sharing with you this week.

As it is Monday it is time for another of our CCEE challenges .... this week also begins a new month so this means we also have a new challenge hostess. This month it is Charlene Merrick's turn to issue the challenge and she has come up with some fun ones as you will see as the month progresses.

The first challenge Charlene issued is one of my favorites .... yes you guessed it, it is a sketch challenge. Charlene instructed us to use one of her favorite sketch designs from SCS, which was SC75 ... way back from 2006. However as expected there was a twist ... we had to change the square shape at the bottom of the card to another shape. We also had to include eyelets on our cards.

I changed the square into an oval shape using my oval nestabilities .... the stamps used here are one of the new stamps by MFT Stamps which will be released this Wednesday 5th November. This set used here is called "A Cupcake Kind of Day" .... it has two large cupcakes and a number of sentiments in the set.

I used the required eyelets to my sentiment oval and added brads to the top left of my card.

For any of you who would like to play along here is the sketch to save you having to go searching for it on SCS .... I have also added the extra requirments for our challenge. Don't forget you can see all the other CCEE Stampers cards we all made for this challenge on our CCEE Stampers blog.
