ATC Glimmer Challenge 1

Welcome to Aspiring to Creativity's 1st Glimmer Challenge!

The Challenge: On the 1st Friday of every month, we will be issuing a card challenge that will incorporate up to 2 elements from the following:
  • sketch
  • theme
  • colors
  • inspiration photo
  • specific crafting tool
  • specific embellishment

For this month, our first challenge, Sabrina has designed an original card sketch and chosen 6 colors. All colors need to be incorporated into your creation to qualify. Artistic license is, of course, permitted around the sketch.

Entries:  InLinkz is provided at the bottom of this post so that you can add a link to your project, whether it is on your blog or in a photo gallery. Please be sure to link to the actual blog POST, rather than just your blog, thanks. More than one entry is welcomed! It is greatly appreciated if you link back to this post!

Deadline:  Entries will be due on the 4th Friday of this month, July 23rd at 11:59pm MDT (Mountain Daylight Savings Time).

Selection Process:  Sabrina will announce the winner on the following Monday, July 26th. One honorable mention will be named by Dana (in Sabrina's post). If we are unable to contact you via the email provided in InLinkz, the winner will have until Wednesday, July 28th to email us at glimmercraft[at]gmail[dot]com to claim your prize. Otherwise, the honorable mention will be up to claim the prize!

Award:  On this occasion, we are offering a $25 Papertrey Ink gift certificate to the winner. Both the winner and honorable mention recipient will receive our "Blinkie" for their blogs, boasting of your accomplishment!

Card challenges are meant to be fun and to inspire creativity so we hope that you get enthusiastic about our Challenge and show the paper-crafting web community your stuff!

Thank you for visiting!

Thanks for such a fun challenge! :) After doing it, I realized that my card is a basic A2 size. :( Hope this doesn't disqualify me. I appreciate your making me think outside my creative box! ;) Looking forward to more challenges!
