Challenge #1 @ The Crafty Purple Frog!!

Hiya folks!

Yeay! It's the first ever challenge at The Crafty Purple Frog!! Yeay!!

You really need to get over to the Challenge Blog and take a shifty at the fabby prizes on offer for Kick Off - loads up for grabs!! (Including some goodies from my shop, Delicious Doodles) And what do you have to do to win these prizes??? ANYTHING folks - the theme is 'Anything Goes', couldn't be easier huh??

So, I made a sideways Easel card for this challenge using the Peacock Blue Pyrimage sheet, which I chopped about a bit as I don't usually do pyrimage. I wanted the square image from the pyrimage sheet, rather than the oval of the decoupage sheet. I also used a yummy frame from a My Craft Studio cd, blue pearescent card, stickles and a few punches and spare card bits. Here is a piccie of the fold:

So simple, yet it took blooming ages for me to actually finish. It was sitting on the desk for almost a week while I was busy with other stuff!! Me BAD!! Talking of which, I have another card to finish for tomorrow, so I really must get on. Here is a close-up of the image:

These sheets are a total joy to work with, especially if you love Ching Chou-Kuik's lovely artwork, but can't be doing with the colouring in of all the fiddly bits (like me!) These are already coloured, and the layers are already sorted for you - cool eh??

I am entering this into the 'Open' challenge at Flutterby Wednesday, and in the 'Open' challenge at Pear Tree Designs.

OK peeps, off you go and check out the Brand New Challenge at The Crafty Purple Frog - see you there folks!
