YNS Challenge #1 and a Winner!!!



The Your Next Stamp Challenges have begun!!!  Make sure you play along with us because the winner (the favorite card) will get a FREE YNS set, and a special winner blinkie to put on their blog!!!  Also, because Karen is so sweet and generous another random winner will also receive a FREE stamp set!  But that's not all!  One random commenter will win a special discount : )  You do need to use at least one YNS stamp on your creation, which is why Karen has some digital images available for a limited time. 

Speaking of digital images, the winner of the 2 FREE digital images is Jodi Collins aka Kharmagirl!!!  Just e-mail Karen--- karen@yournextstamp.com to claim your digis : )

Amy is hosting our first challenge and she asked us to use pink and yellow on our cards.  This was somewhat difficult because we were using the Halloween digital images!  I chose this digital pumpkin.  I cut it out along with the stars and popped them up on Dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the Happy Halloween Fhiona set : )  I used Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #38 for my layout.

Head on over to the YNS Challenge Blog to see all the details, and to check out all of the Starlets creations!   I can't wait to see what you guys come up with! Thank you so much for stopping by today : )

I think this is really cute - - and I love the pink in there for Halloween which is something you really don't see a lot of if at all! Did you handcut all those little stars? That looks tedious! - you're so patient with your craft!

I can't believe you cut out all those stars! Wow. It looks super cool, though. And I would have had a really hard time thinking of how to get the pink on there, but the end result is too fun! It's a great Halloween card.
