A New Challenge Blog from 7 Kids College Fund!!!

How exciting!!  I am overjoyed to share with you a brand new challenge blog from 7 Kids College Fund.  In honor of the 7 Kids logo, for our first challenge we are asking that you create something that is pink and has polka dots.  How fun is that?  Oh, and the best part of all...7 Kids College Fund is sponsoring all of our challenges!  The randomly drawn first prize is going to be a $50 gift certificate to the store!!    The design team will then pick their Top 3 and they can display our awesome blinkie on their sidebar.  Out of the top 3 we will chose one to be guest designer for our next challenge!

Here is my inspiration for you.  I used Ballerina Tilda.  She is stamped on Neenah Solor White super smooth cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The beads are from Jolee'.  And my designer paper is from Basic Grey, Koishi and Cappella.  I used copic sketch markers to color with.  Sorry, I was such in a hurry to get this card done that I forgot to list the copics that I used.  Here are a few that I can think of off the top of my head, E00, E21, R00, R01, R02, R20, E50, E53, E30, E33.

I'm so glad you stopped by today.  I hope you will play along with us, I look forward to seeing your creations!!
