I am so excited to be part of the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge “Sweeties” Team. These doll images from this week’s challenge is sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls and their digital images are SO adorable. The challenge this week is Color Challenge and the colors are pink and mint! You don’t need the image to participate as this is a color challenge. These challenges are a load of fun. Click on the picture below to participate or click HERE. I can’t wait to see your creations!
Here is my card for the challenge. It was created using a digital image from Paper Nest Dolls. Please check the website for adorable digital images. Because coffee is necessary to keep going I added an exclusive die from Concord & 9th. However, you can use any coffee/tea stamp or die you have in your stash.
