First card for Crafts Galore Encore DT

Happy 2015 to all of you!! I'm very excited to start the new year by showing you my first card for the Crafts Galore Encore DT. The theme for the January challenge is Anything Goes to give you a great opportunity to get into crafting gear again after the holidays. You can share anything you craft, it doesn't necessarily have to be a card. Any crafty entry is welcome as long as it's a new creation. 

Our sponsor this time is Scrappers Delights and the DT is creating using images from the store. The prize for one randomly selected winner is three digis of their choosing. So hop over to Crafts Galore Encore and link up your fabulous creations for the month of January!

I created a card using the Cupcake Honey digi. I decided to do a double fold instead of just a normal card just for the fun of it, and to have space for more diecut cupcakes. I used the Sweet Sorbet DSP and selected the colours for the digi stamp from the paper. I added one of my favourite sentiments from the Stampin' Up Yippee-Skippee stamp set which I think is perfect for the theme of the card. For colouring, I used a mix of Copics, Blendabilities and Stampin' Write markers. For the layout of the inside, I used this week's RetroSketch.

Card fully folded.
