Scrapy Land Challenge #1



Today's the day for the brand new and improved Scrapy Land Challenges to begin.  


The theme is Anything Goes using Dies and the challenge will run until 8pm Eastern time, Sunday Sept 14th.  This gives the Designers a couple of days to choose the Winner and the Top 3.  Speaking of winners, everyone gets a badge for being selected and the Winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to Scrapy Land.

For my project today, I combined Sue Wilson Designs dies (Spanish Collection - Granada; California Collection - Beverly Hills) with my Sweet Wordlets die (Miss You) from Die-Versions.   Although I couldn't capture the glitter on the sentiment, it is covered with Green Iris glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The pre-made roses were also covered with glue and Green Iris glitter for a bit more sparkle.

The seam binding ribbon was dyed using Distress Stains (Antique Linen, Seedless Preserves) and pearls were added to the corners.  This is a quick and easy card to create and send to someone to tell them you miss them.

You'll definitely want to head on over to the Scrapy Land Challenge Blog to see what all the Designers have created for you today.  There is a wide variety of styles and lots of inspiration.  Plus, we have a special Guest Designer visiting us for the debut of the new SL Challenge Blog.  Upload your creations using the InLinz button by Sept 14th for your chance to win the fabulous prize.

A stunning color combination with these lovely SWilson dies. I've just started collecting these awesome dies. You've used this one to wonderful effect on this gorgeous card. Liked the navy die against the purple die, and those sweet roses were perfect additions. Thanks for your visit & comment and TFS
