The BRAND NEW Stampavie Challenge

The Stampavie Design Team is really excited. Welcome to our first official Stampavie challenge. We will run challenges every two weeks and we would like to invite you to join the fun. There will be wonderful prizes sponsored by Stampavie directly each time. So come on and join us with Challenge number 1!

There are only a few rules to follow:
- use a Stampavie image for your work
- link your work (posting) directly to Mr. Linky under the current challenge to be entered for the prize
- please link back to our challenge in your posting
Here’s the prize:
The prize contains :
1 Sarah Kay Spring Blossom stamp
1 Rachelle Anne Miller Oval Frame Birds stamp
17 6″x6″ sheets from the Basic Grey Eva collection
4 ribbons
various embellishments, brads, flowers, charms

So here we go! We want to start with a sketch drawn by our wonderful DT member Diane. Please make a card or any other hand made item using at least one Stampavie image and our following sketch:
My card I wanted something fun and I was just dying to use one of the brand new Rachelle Anne Miller images this is "Going Fishing" and I think he is just too cute for words.

He is colored with my Copics and then cut out using my Labels Nestibilities die.
All of the papers are called Imaginisce - it is really yummy papers, really heavy papers that are two sided, and have shiny raised flowers on it. My base is an American Crafts card base, I just cut my papers to follow the sketch, ran a ribbon across the top and then added three buttons. It all came together pretty quick. Then I sat a stared at it for two days - It just didn't seem finished. I don't know what it is missing, I never did figure it out, but I love the colors and I love that little elephant!
I do hope you will hop on over to the Stampavie DT Blog and join in on our very first Challenge!
