You Want to See WHAT!?!?!?!?!

LOL! Yep, this week's challenge at THE CRAFTY PAD is going to be an interesting one! We have the very lovely Joanna Sheen sponsoring us again this week, with a £10 voucher to spend in her shop.

Back to the theme of this week's challenge.......We want to see....


Yes, you DID read it right, we want you to make a card or project with holes! I must say, my immediate thought was a shadow-box card, but I've already made 2 of those for my DT spot recently, so it was thinking cap on. Here's what I came up with...

It's a tri-shutter card! The DT all had the fabulous cupcakes collection to work with this week available from The Crafty Pad Shop at £2.50 for the digi set, and £6.99 for the rubber stamps.

As you can see, I decided to go bold! I printed my BP straight onto card and cut/folded my tri-shutter shape. I also added some border-punched 'holes' to fit in with the theme.

I chose Promarkers to match the colours in the BP and coloured 2 copies of the cupcake stack, mounted them onto yellow circles and added some card candy dots. For the centre panel I used the cupcake sentiment from the set. Some pink ric-rac along the top and bottom borders and some inking to the edges to finish.

I am really looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week.....pop on over to the challenge blog and get some inspiration from the rest of the DT cards there......once again they are WICKED!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by!
