Cupcake and Candy

Hmm, an unusual one for me! Cupcake Crafts have set the challenge to make a shaped card. I needed to make a Birthday card for a little chap who's turning two on Friday and this is it:

The 'lil spaceman in his ship image is from the Digi Stamp Boutique. I was a bit lazy and this one was already coloured in and ready to print. I just re-sized it and printed it on the right hand side of a piece of A4 card. I downloaded the font from Da-Font, I think it's called 'Clink - Clank'. I thought it went with the image well and coloured it with matching ProMarkers. All I did was cut around the image after I'd creased the card with good old fashioned scissors - no digital cutting for me!

I popped a 'lil green man inside the card with a '2' also printed in matching font:

And then I must give a 'big up' to Evelina who is one of the DT at Cupcake Crafts. All the DT were giving away candy last week as part of CC birthday celebrations and I've won this gorgeous selection of goodies from Evelina. Evelina has an amazing blog and designs stamps for Sugar Nellie. Thanks so much Evelina, can't wait to have a play with this lot.
