Hi lovely bloggers - it's time to Dare U 2 Digi Stamp again!
Another two weeks have gone by, so time to get your thinking caps on for another fab challenge - A SHAPED CARD!
Lots of scope there then - can't wait to see what you all come up with! Thanks to everyone who joined in the previous challenge - stunning entries once again!
Pop over to DU2DS
for full details and some DT inspiration!
My DT offering is a Nestie easel card with a fabulous digi image from the talented Mo Manning. This little sweetie has been coloured with Copics (of course), and methinks I may have overdosed on the pinkness and the glitter, but hey - a girl can never have enough of these things!
The two large cupcakes have been decoupaged and I then printed a smaller version of the image so I could cut out a teeny-weeny cupcake for the "stopper". 
I have added lots of Glamour Dust and Stickles (Star Dust and Silver), spotty paper from Papermania Chatsworth, Penny Black sentiment on a SU punched oval scallop.
If anyone has been looking for a simple to follow
tutorial on small Nestie Easel Cards - pop over
here. Kari's easel cards are fabulous.
Have a great weekend everyone!
