Make It Monday sponsored by Cupcake Cards & Crafts!

You know, I don't mind Mondays so much - I look forward to sharing my DT cards that are scheduled to post on Mondays!!  And this post is for the Make It Monday challenge where we just want you to share creativity, be it new or old!  I love seeing the entrant's creations - talk about inspiration!  For this week, we are being sponsored by one of my favourite stores that sells gorgeous and funky digital papers and kits!  This is my make using their gorgeous You Rock! design digi papers...


I thought the Tickled Pink Lil' Lolita 60's Hippie Willow (from Bunny Zoe's here) would be perfect for this funky and used some CC Designs sentiments (don't ask me which!).  As you can see from the photos, I used the same papers to create the smaller squares then the large background for the inside of the card - I simply did this using the printing options.  If you want more info on this, just ask!

Anyhoo, this week's prize will be the 'Polly Anna' Paper collection (which you can buy here), a bright colour palette with fabulous modern designs!


You can see what the rest of the design team made with this gorgeous paper collection here - I know you will love them!

And now for my choice from last week's MIM entrants!  This week I have chosen this stunning shabby chic tag by Einat!  It's easy to see why I love it but the most striking aspects are the colour combo and placement of the embellies - just came together perfectly!

Thanks for visiting and I'll be back later with my DT card for Quixotic Inspirations and some exciting news on my guest designer role for Pollycrafts Monday!
