The first ever Clearly Besotted challenge!!

Hey folks, the big news around here today is that Steph is launching a new challenge over on her blog Stamping and Sharing, for all fans of Clearly Besotted stamps and dies.  How is exciting is that??  The first challenge is “Anything Goes” so if you own anything CBS at all you must join in the fun and play along.  Even if you don’t have any of the products yet (what’s WRONG with you?? Lol) you can still play along – just click HERE and download the freebie digi images Steph has created for you!

In order to qualify for the prize (open to everyone worldwide), please kindly adhere to the following guidelines:
  • Your crafty creation must contain at least one Clearly Besotted product.
  • It must be posted on your blog or an online gallery and linked below – direct link to post only please.
  • The closing date for entries is Sunday 23rd June 2013 (12:00 Mindnight GMT).
  • Multiple entries are permitted but they must be a new creation each time.
  • Please put GD next to your name if you’d like to be considered for our August Guest Designer Spot.

To celebrate the very first challenge and to kick things off in style, Steph is offering one randomly selected winner a very impressive prize ……..wait for it…… 5 Clearly Besotted stamps sets of your choice!!!!!  Now that’s one generous prize package isn’t it!  The other VERY exciting bit of news to report is that you will also have a chance at a guest DT spot (just put GDT in your link).

Now onto the card I have created for this very first challenge.  I have used the new April Showers (currently out of stock but due in very soon I am told!) set and one of the little bows from Make a Wish.  Can I just say “BEST.FONT.EVER”


I coloured the umbrella with proMarkers and paired it with some PTI patterned paper and Cath Kidston washi tape.

Can’t wait to see all the entries – the challenge runs until Sunday 23rd June – have fun!!!

I actually used the current {CAS}e This Sketch challenge as my inspiration for this card (love their sketches) so am entering it over at that challenge too!!  Here’s the sketch:
