Crafty Ann's Challenge #1 - Let's Celebrate!


Hi everyone, well today's the day! The very first challenge of Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog and what an ideal theme of 'Let's Celebrate'

Pop over to the challenge blog and check it out! While you're there take a look at Ann's DT (or Dream Team as she calls it) page, chances are you'll know at least one or two of us (especially if you happen to be a 'Sheenie' LOL!)

Ann designs some wonderful digital images and as for her backing papers, well they're just stunning! I've used all of Ann's own designs on this card and just finished off with some bits from my stash.
This is actually based around the card I made for my youngest son's birthday a few days ago and the image is one that I think is perfect for a young man (and we all know how difficult they are to cater for don't we?)

Card Details:
* Image - Crafty Ann's 'Electric Guitar 2'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Backing paper - Crafty Ann's 'Polished Brights Dark Grey' and 'Woodgrain Tan'
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Embossed zig-zag'
* Everything else from my stash.

I do hope that you'll be able to join in the fun with us, and as each challenge will last for 2 weeks you have a little more time than most challenges.
Ann is also offering a fabulous prize, just look at this:
To celebrate our first challenge there will be a prize for one lucky person. The winner will receive any 5 digi stamps and and 5 backing paper collections of their choice. Currently there are 12 backing paper collections and 18 digi stamps – although there will most likely be more to choose from by the time the winner is announced. You can check out what you might win on the pages at the top of the blog, and they are available to purchase at Crafty Ann’s now. As a separate thing, we’ll have a new Guest Designer each month and if you would like to be considered for the January GDT spot, remember to put GDT in the title of your post for your challenge entry.
What’s more, you can have more than one entry! Just check out the challenge blog to see how.
If you're still in need of some inspiration just take a look at the other Design Team creations, I'm sure they'll fill your head with lots of wonderful ideas.
