The Corrosive Challenge #166 - Put A Pin In It

A new sponsor, a new challenge, and a new team!  Does it get anymore exciting than this?!  Oh, yeah, and a new prize!  The Corrosive Challenge is new, new, new this week!  We all know how much I've been enjoying Pinterest lately!  lol  Well, over at The Corrosive Challenge we have a fabulous challenge inspired by this wonderfully addictive site!  The theme is "Put A Pin In It" - use hat, push, or safety pins AND/OR this pinspirational photo:



I decided to do both!  My colors and polka dots are inspired by the photo (as is my image).  And I've used a word stick pin that reads "Bliss" which I added a few pearls to.  My creation features an Emerald Fairy image from our sponsor A & T Digital Designs.  Anita generously offered several images for the design team to use for this challenge.  This lovely couple is called Willy & Mia.  My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary yesterday so I made a card for them. (Coincidentally, I will be 40 this year in August!  *wink, wink*)  I started with sketch #242 from Sketch Saturday.  Papers are Sabrina - Making Memories.  The image is colored with Copics and I framed it with a hand-drawn line border for a little extra interest.  The border punch is Martha Stewart and the heart die is a Nestabilities from Spellbinders.  I added glittered chipboard numbers to the larger of the two hearts, and stamped the sentiment on a fishtail banner die from My Favorite Things.  Stickles on the wings is the finishing touch!



  

Pop on over to The Corrosive Challenge to meet our new team members and view all the gorgeous pinspiration the entire team has to share with you!  If you play along you have a chance to win 3 digis from the A & T Digital Designs shop for yourself!

Thanks for stopping in today!  We are off to NH for the day to visit a friend!  This means no Pinterest for me....  Well, maybe a little!
