Copic Creations One-Year Anniversary Challenge


Welcome to our one-year anniversary post. We've done something special to celebrate. Not only do we have several sponsors for this challenge, but each DT member is giving away their posted card and/or blog candy. The challenge is to do your favorite image and incorporate one of more of your favorite challenge themes that we've covered this past year. My card is actually a hanging card. By the time I added the lattice work, I decided that it would be a pretty piece to hang, so I backed it with DP and added "picture-hanging hardware" so it could be hung. I have an optional "Happy Easter" greeting that can be adhered if desired, but I actually liked it better without it. My blog candy is a brand new Bow Easy. My card image is a design by Philomena O'Neill (sponsor of our 20th CC Challenge) at Phindy's Place. This card is sort of a CASE of one that Jami posted awhile back that I fell in love with. You can see her post here. The challenge themes I used are the feathering technique and the coloring of embellishments. I feathered this shy little bunny's dress with BV11 and R20 and I colored the top flower to match her dress. We have 10 fabulous sponsors for this anniversary challenge, and I'm going to invite you to get the details of who they are and how to win at the Copic Creations Challenge blog right here. Be sure you check out the fabulous entries the DT has for this challenge. Remember, in order to win from the individual blogs you must leave a comment on those blogs. The winner of each blog will be announced on April 1, the same time as we announce the winner of the challenge. I hope you'll help us celebrate the first anniversary of this fabulous semi-monthly challenge by playing along and leaving some luv for each of the talented DT members. Thanks so much for coming by and have a wonderful stampin' week.
