Getting Cheeky with Corrosive Challenges

Hi Folks
Well what a lovely weekend weather wise we are having.  Actually managed to get the BBQ out yesterday, first time this year.  Let's hope this nice weather continues for a few weeks.

Well, it's time for a new challenge over at Corrosive Challenges.
Our sponsor for July is Graphicat Designs.

and they have generously offered a $15 voucher to spend in store to our July winner.

Our challenge theme for this fortnight is:

Cheeky, Saucy, and Sassy.

Using an image and/or sentiment, we want you to make us laugh.  If it's witty, funny, sarcastic, or even a tiny bit naughty we want to see it for this challenge.

We are also previewing the new layout over at Graphicat Sketches before their new challenge starts tomorrow.  And as a bonus, anyone who combines this sketch with their challenge entry for us will get an extra entry for our July prize draw.  Simply link a second time (to your general blog) and type SKETCH after your name.

So what are you waiting for.  Pop over to Corrosive challenges, check out the sketch and the awesome work of the design team and get your entries in.  Just be as funny as you can.

Here is what I created.

I created my card blank using my grand calibur and a large scalloped circle die.  I then cut various sizes of circles in different papers and card to create the layers.  The image and sentiment are from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured with promarkers and added some glossy accents to the cherries (I wasnt sure whether they were cherries or olives so as I don't like olives I went with cherries lol).  I made the sentiment into a little tag which I hung using a small piece of red ribbon.  A red feather, bow, flower and a pin completed the card.

I was quite pleased with the way it turned out as it is the first time I have created a card blank using my grand calibur and large nesties.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Little Miss Muffet - Circles or Tags
Top Tip Tuesday - Its all about circles
Creative Card Crew - Black card stock
Digi Doodle - Anything goes
Crafts 4 Eternity - Crazy circles
Divas By Design - Anything goes
LEJ Designs - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and look forward to seeing all your entries.
