In2stamps Challenge #1 - Shivers me timbers!


In2stamps is starting the new year with a brand new challenge blog. It is a monthly challenge, so this gives you plenty of time to participate. The theme for the very first challenge for January is a colour challenge of blue and brown. You can check out the details on the In2stamps Challenges Blog here. THE WINNER WILL RECEIVE 3 STAMPS OF YOUR CHOICE!!!

This is my DT card for the challenge.

The image I have used is the Pirate B-day Party from the Birthday Collection. I thought this would be the perfect image to use on a birthday card for a little boy. The candle image is one of four in the Birthday Ornaments set from the same collection.

I have stamped the image twice. The second one I have cut out and mounted on foam tape (or dimensionals) for a more 3-D look.

I hope you will take a look at the cards from the other DT members--they have done amazing jobs with the challenge--and will join us. The challenge is open until February 1st.
Have a wonderful day!

Wow, this is a fantastic card, so beautiful, and blue and brown is such a great combo, as is brown and pink, or brown and olive green. Brown just lifts up the other colours so much !! Great job !!
