Kraftyhands April Challenge Reminder

Today I want to remind you about this month's challenge on the Kraftyhands Challenge Blog. There are 8 days left to enter. If you use a Kraftyhands product on your entry you could win a £20 voucher to spend in the Kraftyhands webshop so pop over there to see what fabulous goodies you can pick up.
The theme is:
"April Showers - Shades of Blue"
For a mid-inspiration card I have used the fantastic new Kraftyhands CD, Man About Town. It contains a wealth of fabulous papers and toppers especially designed to make male cards. It also has wonderful layouts to make Gatefold and Stepper cards.

I printed out one of the Stepper Card sets and assembled the base. I inked the edges of the panels and pyramage in Salty Ocean Distress Ink, added two Spellbinder triangle dies as an extra mat and mounted the pyramage on foam pads.

The sentiment is from the CD and I added the Cheery Lynn leaf flourishes.
A full list of the challenge rules can be found on the Kraftyhands Challenge blog. There is a £20 voucher to spend on the Kraftyhands website for the lucky winner if they have used a Kraftyhands product, and blinkies for the top three entries.  Please pop over to the blog to see the wonderful cards the other DT members have created for your inspiration.

  9. This is absolutely wonderful. I love the shape of the card, as using the larger topper with the gorgeous diecut layer really changes the card. The gorgeous diecuts really make this card look so professional.
    Your cards are always so gorgeous and have a look of their own as you use gorgeous colours and images.
