Cupcake Craft Challenge 35 (single layer)


This challenge gave me the hardest time.. I actually had made 3 cards and was not happy with any of them and then with a little encouragement from my friend Sandy made a 4th card and I am happy with it enough to post it. Thanks Sandy!!! Make sure you get over to the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog and check out what the other girls have made this week, all the projects are awesome! After talking with Sandy I realised that I had these cute little Amuse note cards that I could use for the base of my card that had some color and design in it and that is what made me think of this little Chicken and chick from Penny Black. Then I had the perfect sentiment from Elzybell to go with the image. I wanted some doodles around my pic. but I stink at doodles so I hopped on my sewing machine and added some stitches. I made the flower and popped it up on some foam tape. I hope you had a wonderful Easter Weekend!!!

This is adorable. Not sure I'm into the single layer challenge though. That would be tough.
