Mmmmm! Die-Licious!

Happy Easter Sunday everyone! I hope the Easter Bunny was generous when he hopped past your place, and you are going to enjoy a day of crafting and chocolate!

Today at THE CRAFTY PAD we have a brand new challenge for you. Challenge #165 is *drumroll*....

Die-Delicious!

Yes folks, we want you to use some DIE CUTS on your creations. As I make way more girls'cards than boys, I decided to challenge myself and create a guy card. Here it is:


It's a 6x6 Kraft stepper card base from Docrafts (Papermania.) The mega-cute image is called Bradley on Toy Horse, and is available from The Crafty Pad Designs. I used some digital papers by The Creative Cottage called 'Wild West' (sadly no longer trading/available.)


  I coloured Bradley using Promarkers to co-ordinate with the DPs.

The first die-cuts I have used are my Sizzix Fun Serif Alphabet set to cut the word 'Howdy.' Behind the letters you can see some Bakers Twine. The  'Fabulous Fella' sentiment ticket is also a Crafty Pad one :)


The second die cuts are my Cuttlebug stars, which I have also embossed and inked.
I then added some garden twine for a rope and some Card Candi.
Our sponsor this week is Crafty Emmas Store with a prize of £10.00 to spend in her shop.

I do hope you will pop over to our challenge blog and enter this week, and also check out the rest of Team B's creations on the challenge blog.


 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
