Get Creative Challenges Blog Launch - Challenge #1

Good morning to all my friends and fellow crafters.   If you remember two weeks ago I said I had a new position on a new design team. Unfortunately there were some family problems for one of the owners and sadly it was shut down. Well I'm very excited this morning to post a card for a brand spanking  new challenge blog and today is the launch! Get Creative Challenges

The challenges will be every two weeks and alternating between the Pink and Purple Teams. The Pink Team kicks off and the challenge is "Anything Goes - with an Optional Twist of Stitching".  I got so carried away that I totally forgot the stitching.  Fortunately it was optional otherwise I would have had to try and rectify it.

The prize is three images of your choice from our sponsor Angies Digi Stamps.   Angie is also the owner of our blog and she has put so much hard work into getting our blog up and running in no time at all!!!  Thanks so much Angie. Please pop across and see what the rest of the Pink Team have produced using Angi's great digi images.  We would love you to participate in our very first challenge.

My Card

6" x 6" base card cut from white card stock
Image - Cute Bug in a Flower - Angie's Digis
Backing papers - First Edition  "Summer Breeze"
Spellbinders - Large Circles
Spellbinders - Lacy Circles
Sue Wilson - Faux Quilled Leaves
