The Challenge One Year Celebration!

Happy Anniversary to The Challenge! Not familiar with The Challenge? It's hosted by Lesley Croghan. on her blog Always Playing WIth Paper. Lesley is the creator of lots of wonderful challenges including Fusion, Dynamic Duos, Seize the Birthday, Seize the Sketch, Card Concept, and Merry Monday - just to name a few.

Here is what you need to know:
What: One Year Anniversary at The Challenge (yay!)  You can get all the details and link your projects here.

The theme is Anything Goes but you must link up a NEW project created especially for this challenge and you can only link to 5 other challenges (including The Challenge).

Prizes:  Wendy Ramlakhan, the owner of SugarPea Designs, has generously offered a SPD Gift Certificate for one lucky participant. It will be one random winner…the more times you play, the better your odds.

The challenge begins today and ends on Sunday, April 5th at Noon (PST).
I made a nautical themed card with lots of layers of paper from Authentique.  I'm addicted to pins for adding sentiments or just a little extra bling like this one from Tim Holtz.  
The stamps are from Waltzingmouse - they've been adding lots of dies to the store to match existing stamp set.  This one is "Oceanbound" 
The stitched scallop border is from Pretty Pink Posh, and those bitty wood looking sequins are both in stock at Serendipity Stamps.   Gotta have some pretty Twinery Twine in maraschino too to keep it all together!  

I hope you join us at The Challenge!  It's a fun place to play and you're sure to see a few folks you know there!
