Crafting When We Can Challenges 89 - Colour Combo - Grey, Pink, Kraft

I'm helping my son create a Judge Dredd costume for a Convention he wants to attend in April.  I'm playing the part of labourer.  Mom can you sand this, Mom can you cut these, Mom can you sew this.  That's why my post is late.

Over on CWWCC  we have a new sponsor 

The Prize is 4 (none coloured) images from the shop

Theme: Grey, Pink, Kraft

I already had a Meljen's Design image (I have several) I wanted to use for this colour combo challenge.  I used Cupcake Treat Trio for the fabulous image on my card.  

The pink and grey card I used was from a Multi-Coloured Pad I bought from Lidl.  It has 25 sheets of 270gsm card, only 1 of each colour but at £1.99 each I bought a few pads.  I also bought a couple of pads of 50 papers at 170gsm for the same cost.  The kraft paper was some I had laying around, just enough for what I wanted.  I used ribbon from my stash and a sentiment from the front of a magazine (can't remember which).  Coloured with Spectrum noir pens, placed on a die cut from my new Tonic Deco trellis die.  The images at the back have glitter and pearl pen on the icing.  The cupcake cases have brads as the decoration.  The front cupcake has been raised on foam pads and a butterfly brad placed on top.  The sentiment is placed on a spellbinder label.
I hope you like my project.  I really enjoyed making it.

Hop over to the CWWCC and show us your projects.  Push yourself to use this combo, I really like all the cards the DT have I hope you'll find some great inspiration from them.
