Card Contest Share #1

Last month I made several cards for the Paper Crafts Stamping Royalty Card contest, but none of my cards were chosen as a winner.  Bummer!  Oh well, you can't always know what the judges are looking for, so I'll just try again next year.  Anyway, now that I know they didn't win I can take the pictures out of hiding and share then with you. 

The first one was one of my favorites.  I thought the die cut scalloped square shape, which is about 4x4 square, would give this card a different, but fun look and of course who doesn't love the Create a Cupcake stamp set!  I also had to add a cherry to the top of my cupcake using my super easy to use Build a Cupcake punch.  If you haven't seen or used these fabulous only have until April 30th to order them......don't miss out!

  1. I love the brightness and cheerfulness of this card, and I've always been a brown and pink fan, especially with the red as an accent. Sorry you didn't win the contest...I had to stop entering contests because I always got so disappointed when I didn't win, ha ha! Thanks for sharing your contest entry with us!
