An Exciting New Weekly Challenge!

I have some really exciting news!!!!!! There is a great new weekly challenge that is starting today, "Going Grey" with Scrap-Creations Challenges. It is being hosted by Kristen Catalano of Scrap-Creations. The great thing about it is that each week there will be a theme for the challenge and the twist to these challenges is that you need to use Basic Grey paper on your creation as well as the weekly theme. The very first one is "CELEBRATIONS" in honor of the the first challenge. You have until the following Monday at 6:00pm EDT to post your creation. Hope Stamps Eternal has graciously offered to sponsor the first challenge and has a fantastic prize, a pack of Kioshi and Green at Heart Basic Grey 6x6 paper packs, so you'll definitely want to play along!

I am very honored to say that I have been asked to be part of the DT team for these challenges.
All of these ladies are extremely talented so I am very excited to be part of the team!

This is the card that I created for this first challenge, CELEBRATIONS. The Basic Grey paper is from one of the new paper packs. The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. One thing that you can't see in the picture is that the spirals on her dress have been glittered for some sparkle (every party dress should sparkle and shine right?) Hope you like my interpretation of this challenge.

Here are some other challenges for this card

"Going Grey" with Scrap-Creations Challenge #1-This first challenge is "Celebrations" a definitely fun theme. Don't forget your BG paper!

Just Us Girls Challenge #23-a wonderful sketch, I loved using it for this card

Paperplay Challenge week 9-Just Because is the challenge this week, a fun challenge!

Dare You To Digi Stamp Challenge #32-This challenge was to use pearls on your creation. I think I have that covered with this card

The Pink Elephant Challenge #57-This challenge is to create a party invite. Cute idea for a challenge

Saturday Spotlight Challenge SSHP21-The challenge this week is "friendship", This girl and her dog are definitely friends who like to party together, don't you think?
