CES DT Card & Challenges

(Click on photo for a bigger picture)

Thankyou so much to all those who took part in our first CES Challenge. We were overwhelmed with entries. Take a look HERE to see if you were the lucky winner of last weeks challenge or have taken the Top 3 Blinkie. This week we are having a "Floral Frenzy" and would like to see lots of flowers on your card. I have used the new Prima Annalee Paper Pad which is available at Crafty Emma's Store and distressed the edges with the TH Distress Tool. The image is a free download from Magic Moonlight. Tim Holtz Tissue Tape which is fantastic and a TH Swirl Stamp. The Ticket is from the TH Strip and have used the new TH Ticket stamp. Have Distressed with TH Distress Ink Pads. See a theme? (lol)The Postmark is a Paper Artsy Stamp. Viva Pearl Pens and lots of Stickles. The Butterfly is the MS Punch and selection flowers all Stickled.
This weeks prize is a Basic Grey Card Kit
