Giveaway--Blog Post 100!

Hello friends.  I made it to post 100 & I have 35 followers--time for a little giveaway!  I so appreciate all the encouraging comments & your friendship.  Decided to practice for my future DT duties (it's a goal for someday!) with a challenge for you.  This dress, surprisingly, has been one of my summer favorites--a little bold with some colors I usually don't wear.  By adding a brown sweater it's also working for the transition to Fall.  Here's the challenge:  use this dress to inspire your work.  Remember, you can click on the picture to get a better look.  Leave a link to your card in a comment on this post.  I will copy a picture of all the entries for the post where the winner is announced.   My hubby will be the judge.  He has always liked art & has a good eye for color & design (at least I think so!)  Sometimes it's nice to get the opinion of non-cardmakers--not just the "experts."  
I focused on the border for my card to get you started.  It was fun to just grab a variety of stamps & inks:

  • HA, Impression Obsession, Penny Black, Autumn Leaves, JudiKins, PSX
  • Memento Bamboo Leaves, Versafine Vintage Sepia, ColorBox Apricot, Distress Inks ripe persimmon, pine needles, festive berries 

Hope you'll join in & have fun with this--you truly are special!  I can't wait to see your cards.  The deadline is midnight, Pacific Time, Saturday, Oct. 13th.

    Had fun doing this. Was inspired by the way the colour was around the flowers and the flourishes.
