Going Grey Challenge #1.......Wahoooooo


Oh my word, I am SOOO excited.....Today is the day of my first Challenge. My DT team and myself are so excited about this journey we are about to embark on.
So, let me tell you how the "Going Grey challenge" at Scrap-Creations works. Every Tuesday I will post a challenge with some sort of theme (sketch, color, holiday, etc...), but the one thing that will always remain the same, is the Designer Paper. In order to play in the challenges, you will always have to use Basic Grey Designer paper. Why Basic Grey, because I am a BG addict of course (hehehe). I love Basic Grey paper and I hope you do too.
With today being the first challenge, I decided that it should be a PRIZE challenge. Rachel from Hope Stamps Eternal has graciously offered to sponsor our prize this week. What's the prize you ask????? Well, Basic Grey paper of course. one random winner will win 1 pack of Kioshi, and 1 pack of Green at heart. Both packs are newly released.
So, what is this weeks challenge???? Celebration of course. We are celebrating our new challenge group and we hope to celebrate with you. All you have to do is create your card and link your card to "mr. Linky" at the bottom of this post. You will have until Monday at 6pm est time to upload your card. I will announce the winner on the following Tuesday.
For my card today, I used one of my new Stampavie stamps (which I am loving), and I used the Basic Grey Cupcake paper. I went with the celebration challenge, and viola we have a challenge here :)

I also wanted to introduce you to a amazing group of ladies that I have asked to be a part of my Challenge inspiration team. Each of these ladies is truly talented. Take a peek at what they came up with for this weeks challenge.
