It is time for the next challenge over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog.
Today we celebrate our one year anniversary over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog.  For the last week and a half we have had a Blogiversary Bash Extravaganza Treasure Hunt taking place.  Yesterday, the final clue was released over here on my blog.  If you missed that post or are brand new, there is still time to play along.  Just click HERE to go to my post from yesterday and you will find everything you need, including a link to the original post over on Scribbles Designs Challenges.  If you haven't joined in already, you are missing out on the opportunity to win a great prize and a free image just for playing along. Throughout the past 10 days, those of us on the DT have been releasing sneak peeks of cards and today it is time for the big reveal!!! First though I want to say a big congrats to Scribbles Designs Challenges for their one year blogiversary...

Now it is time to introduce this month's challenge.  This month for Challenge #13, the theme is Sparkle It Up!. Here is your chance to grab your glitter, sparkles and other forms of bling and get to it!  This challenge is going to be so bright, you're gonna need shades just to check out everyone's work!

There also might be some extra recognition or prizes, you just never know.

You can purchase your Scribbles Designs images HERE and there is a free image over on the challenge blog as well to help get you started.

To help inspire you, I've created a card using one of Sandy's older images,  Flower Chicklet.  Click on the watermark below to take you to its location in the store.

Here are the card and details, I hope I haven't forgotten anything... 

General Notes:
  • Sparkle, sparkle everywhere.  I've added glitter glue to the image and some sparkly ribbon to the front.  While it is hard to see, the white spots on the DP are actually sparkly as well.  In addition, the little half pearls add a tiny extra bit of bling.  I believe that covers all three aspects:  Glitter--check; sparkle--check; bling--check!!!

Digital Image: 
  • Flower Chicklet:  Information for where to buy this image is included above.
    • This image was coloured with Copics and grounded in chalk (although unfortunately, you can't really see it very well).  Chicklet:  Y11, Y13, Y15.  I've added yellow glitter glue to the light petals in the flowers, and green glitter glue to the darker ones.
  • The green glitter ribbon is Celebrate It brand, purchased at Michael's.
  • The yellow and white dotted ribbon is Crafts brand, purchased at Dollarama.
  • The little half pearls are also Crafts brand, purchased at Dollarama.
Electronic Die-Cut Cartridge:
  • I made the frame using the Elegant Edges cartridge from Cricut.

Digital Image:
  • This perfectly appropriate sentiment is another fabulous one from Paulette over at Create With TLC.  Click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and HERE to go to the store.
  • The little flower stickers are also Crafts brand, purchased at Dollarama.
Paper Products:
  • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Card Kit, white, lg.
  • Designer Papers:  
    • Yellow and shimmery white dotted cardstock--Recollection's Everyday Memories Paper Pad.
    • Green paper  used as matting on the inside--Michael's open stock scrapbook paper. 
Challenges I am hoping to enter... 

So put on those thinking caps and design a project that fits our theme.  If you need some images to help you out you can check out all wonderful ones that are in the Scribbles store.  You have an entire month to enter at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog, so I hope to see you there. If you have some time I invite you to go and check out the wonderful inspiration offered up from my colleagues on the DT. We always look forward to seeing what you come up with for each month's theme! 

Until next time,

I don't even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was good. I don't know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren't already Cheers!I must admit that this is one great insight. It surely gives a company the opportunity to get in on the ground floor and really take part in creating something special and tailored to their needs.
