Happy 2nd Birthday Cupcake!

Morning All!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend - thank you to everyone who has stopped by and wished me a lovely mini break - Germany was lovely! I love both the Rhine and the Mosel valley, and this break didn't disappoint! I ate fab cake, drank gorgeous local wine and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. I visited Koblenz on Saturday...I haven't been there in about 4 years and look what I found....

...can you guess what I'm standing outside and what I dragged my poor sister around?? Yes, thats a craft shop!! A really good one too! I caouldn't believe my luck!

If you ever get the chance to visit this area of Germany I'd really recommend it...and if you do go get in touch with me first and I'll tell you where all the fab cake shops are!

Anyway, onto today's card....as you'll notice from my post title it's Cupcake Craft Challenge's 2nd Birthday! Happy Birthday ladies! I love the cupcake challenges each week and they have a very talented DT. It was sad to see Donna step down a couple of weeks ago, but I'm sure the blog will carry on her fab work.

Anyway, their challenge this week is "All the Twos" and they have asked for projects which include 2 papers, 2 ribbons and 2 flowers. If you get a bit stuck take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards.

Here is my card, which I am also entering into this week's challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...can you guess their theme??


No, its not pink or butterflies! It's "What little girls are made of"...they wanted girlie cards and I definitly think this fitted the bill! I've used two pink papers, along with two gorgeous ribbons. I've used a pre-printed sentiment in black to make it stand out from all the pink and I made two punched flowers with sparkly centres.

Cupcake also have a fab Birthday Blog Hop...I'll be joining in after work tonight!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have a good day!
