"Stampin' for the Weekend New Challenge Blog Launch"

Woo Hoo!!! It's finally here......LAUNCH DAY for Stampin´for the Weekend.
Kimmi, Donna and the whole Design Team of Amy, Claire, Ida, Jen, Poppet, Vicki, Vanja and myself have been waiting for this day for ages.....and I do mean ages! LOL

For our first challenge entitled "From Dusk to Dawn", we're asking you to make a card or some other project using the colour scheme of Purple and Yellow, a colour theme not normally seen, but it does look gorgeous together.

On my card I have used Teenage Lizzie with box of chocolates from Whiff of Joy. I coloured her using Prismas and layered her on some purple and yellow card then added some little stars for detail. All papers used on my card are from Designer Extreme Vol 1 and I created a border using my MSDL punch then used my retro punch and adhered roses from my stash for that added bit of bling.

For this week, with it being our first challenge, Kim and Donna have put together a lovely prize with lots of crafting goodies and even chocolates for our first winner. So if you fancy your chances.....please join us. Look forward to seeing you there and I hope you will pop by my fellow DT´s blogs and leave them some love.

Donna said...

Lovely card Nicola, love the image of Lizzie, and your coloring is fabulous. I see you used the lovely Doiley Lace punch, I've had one on order since the beginning of March but fingers crossed it should be here sometime late next week. But love how you've layered the different papers too.
Thanks for being part of the SFTW team
