DYSU Challenge # 13 - Clear, Light Pink and Mauve

It's Thursday again so that means it's DYSU Challenge time. Thanks for all the great entries we had last week and congrats to the winners. Also, a big welcome to our very first Guest Desiginer, Shelby Goolsby. Do go have a look at her creation for this week - it's amazing.

There is also huge surprise for you this week. Our lovely DYSU site owner Alison is rewarding each of the Top 3 picks with 2 (single) images from her fantastic Stretch N Bubbles Shop!! Not only today, but with every challenge from today on! How cool is that?!

This week's challenge is Clear, Light Pink and Mauve.

and our lovely sponsors are:

Black Leaf who are giving the Festive Chinese Lantern Set

Stitchy Bear who are giving $10 Certificate which can be used for Stitchy Stamps, Floppy Latte Designs, and Lexi Creations

Digi's with Attitude who are giving $10 (Canadian) Certificate

For my card I have used a streamer and two of the lantern designs from Black Leaf which I have coloured with Promarkers. I cut a section from the card and inserted acetate (well actually it's not strictly acetate because I couldn't find any sturdy enough so I cut up one of my Spellbinders cases!!!).  The papers are from a My Craft Studio CD - Illustrious Illusions and the border was made by importing the streamer into the programme, tiling it and adding it to a border on the CD.

I then cut the lanterns out, stuck them to the card and finished off with three bows.  A very simple card but quite effective.

And this is the inside - I love that dreamy pink cloud design.

Ok, that's my card for this week so all that is left to say is please don't forget to pop over to the DYSU Challenge blog, take a look at the other DT's cards and then join in the fun. Can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks for looking
