Simon Says Challenge !

Wow, what a fantastic response we had to our Tim Holtz challenge - you will be pleased to know we reached our target of 100 entries in fact, we received 118 entries so a big thank you to all those people who succombed to my badgering !!!

This week, I promise, no badgering and sounding like a double glazing salesman ! After all, with this challenge, I don't think I will need to !

This week on Simon Says Challenge we have a colour combination for you and its BROWN and PINK.

The base card is a Papermania scalloped card.

I have no idea what the patterned paper is. I know it has an oriental theme and I bought it a long time ago !

The images are from the new range of Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamps called Magnificent Asian and Happy Day Asian Flare. I heat embossed the cherry blossom with gold embossing powder. The Asian figure I paper pieced with the backing paper and also a piece of handmade paper which I found in my scraps box.

The little house is a p$%l off !! which was originally black but I coloured it with a Prismacolor gold pen. I wonder how many of us have a stack of peel offs we just had to have when we first started out and are now getting dusty in a corner ? Perhaps that's an idea for a challenge ?

The ribbon is from my stash.

The sentiment is from the stamp set too.

We look forward to seeing your brown and pink creations. Again there are some fantastic examples by the DT and we also have Rach in our Designer Spotlight. Well worth a visit !

Thank you for looking and thank you so much for all your lovely comments which I appreciate so much as they mean so much to me.

I have also decided to enter this card into the Charisma Cardz Challenge this week as their theme is also pink and brown !
