Simon Says Challenge !

Simon says ...... one for the boys !

It was my turn to think of a challenge and you know me, I chose "one for the boys" again ! Sorry !

Now, there is a great incentive for joining our challenge this week. Not only is Heidi offering another $25 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store but Donna of Bearly Mine Crafts is giving away a fabulous CD Designer Extreme Vol.1 as a prize ! What better incentive is there to make something for our lads ?

Here is my creation :

The base card is brown Bazzill.

The patterned papers are by KaiserCraft "Elegance" P119 Elizabeth.

The tag was cut from a concertina tag card which I haven't used and distressed with distress inks and then stamped with a Prima "Dance" stamp in Walnut Stain distress ink. The ribbon is some twill which I bought from my local market and sprayed with some gold glimmer mist and stapled to the tag.

The main image is by Paper Artsy and has been matted onto copper coloured card and stamped in Brilliance Cosmic Copper and Coffee Bean. I also distressed this with distress inks.

The brads are from my stash.

The rest of the DT's male creations are out of this World and such an inspiration if you are struggling. You can use anything you like on your creations, they don't have to have been bought from the Simon Says Store to enter :-)

Simon Says Challenge is now going weekly so we will be with you every Wednesday now instead of fortnightly !

We look forward to seeing you !
