For Fun Challenge and DT Call!

This week at For Fun Challenges, we have a Sketch Challenge for you.... our wonderful Carol (Thanks Carol!) created this for us to play with!

Let the sketch inspire you, and share your creation with us at For Fun! Roll it, stretch it, flip it .... just remember to show us!  The DT this week came up with some wonderful variations with the sketch, so do pop over to the blog and have a look-see.  Here is my creation for you...

Ingredients: Cardstock - Cre8tiv; Paper - a magazine freebie; Marker - Marvy; lace; Rhinestones - Kaisercraft; Pink Satin Ribbon Flower; Threaded Pearls.

I found this wonderful purple snowflake paper and built my card around it - I had to use it!   I cut and measured, measured and cut, and created many layers, and edged them with a purple marker.  The wee small square layers were assembled, the ribbon flower was pierced through the centre, along with the threaded pearls - they are only affixed at that one point, which gives them great movement and they sit away from the card. 

I added a lace border and the rhinestones to the wee topper before fixing it in place on the card. I think this may be the first non Christmas card I've made in the last month!

Do come along and join our sketch challenge!

Next point of interest - we're looking for some super crafty people to join the For Fun Family!  Would you like to be part of our Design Team?  Drop an email to Helen HERE to let her know that you are interested in joining us.  It would be nice for you to let her know a little about yourself, what crafts you like, and don't forget to point her to your own blog .... because we would love to see your stuff!

As part of the DT you will be starting with our challenges in January 2011, and you will receive the For Fun Blog badge to display on your blog, as well as any goodies that our sponsors provide when they sponsor a challenge.... your commitment is to create an inspiration piece for each weekly challenge, and to HAVE FUN!

That's the news for this week... have fun creating, and thanks for peepin!
