Challenge #1 ~ 3pm (EST) SCS Keyword ~ JBENYE1
For our first challenge we are asking you to “RING” in the New Year!!  Keyword here ~ RING!!!  Use your creativeness (is that a word??) and make a card that has a “ring” to it!! LOL!!!  Ideas ~ Wedding card (rings ~ get it!?!?!), circles, a bell, Kids (ring around the Rosie), diamonds (either the shape OR the bling!!!), etc…

Let me tell you a bit about Lucky Ellie over here – she is a Prima Clear Stamp – and isn’t she adorable???  I started with a card base that is 5.5″ square, in Basic Black. I addd a layer of Very Vanilla, and then some beautiful Crate Paper from their Avenue Collection – this piece is called Glam -, which I bought at Jacksonbelle’s store. For my “rings” I did several things – I got out my circle nesties, and used the flip side of the dp to get a scallepd circle, and then I used a classic nestie for the vanilla circle. I stamped Ellie and the sentiment in Versafine Black Ink. I restamped her on another piece of Very Vanilla and painted her with Shimerz Blingz in December Sky. Before I popped her up o ndimensionals, I hung a little decorative bell around her trunk, so she could ring in the New Year, too!

Be sure to visit the other girls, to find out who has blog candy and see the awesome ways they are ringing in the New Year!
