Truly Scrumptious Challenge #1

Hello Friends!!! Today is the day I and my fellow Design Team members have been waiting for!!! Wednesday, February 18th is the debut date of the Truly Scrumptious Challenge Blog!!! I have posted recently that I was chosen as one of the nine Design Team Members. I am the only Design Team member to reside in the USA. We have one Design Team member up in Calgary Canada, one in Scotland and the remaining members all reside in the UK. I cant wait for you to meet all of them!!! Hop on over to the challenge blog and take a look at their fabulous creations. There are some beautiful pieces of eye candy to inspire you with!!!

So today is the very first challenge that we will issue and that challenge is a great sketch challenge. Without further ado, here it is:



and here is my card I designed for this particular sketch. I have to tell you I actually made 2 cards. I do not recommend doing this, because you have to then decide which one you like better. That is too darn hard. So here is the one we chose to go with:



I think it has a fresh spring feel to it with its bright colors and Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers. The whole idea of the challenge blog is for you to play along!!! So all the details are on the blog. This weeks challenge will be sponsored by Alota Stamps!!!

I hope you share in my excitement and plan on playing with our challenge!!! Cant wait to see what you create!!! Have fun playing!!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
