Stamp With Us & Cupcake Challenges


I've had to make a card for my 22 yr old nephew who is stuck in hospital with various broken bones after a really bad motorbike accident last week, and thought this would cheer him up. I made it with the inspiration from 2 challenges - Stamp With Us and Cupcake Craft Challenges. How hard is it to make a card for a lad when he's stuck in hospital when most of the male cards usually involve vehicles or beer, or other things that he can't actually do right now! Oh well, off to see him now...
Stamps used: life's a breeze, sanded (stampin' up)
Inks used: real red, orange, blue (stampin' up)
Colouring method: stamped
Cardstock used: bold brights - stampin' up
Tools used: nesties, scissors
