Dream Valley Challenges

Hi Everyone
Hope you have all been enjoying your weekend.  The sun has been shining here and so we made the most of it this afternoon by having a barbecue.  We bought a new gas barbecue last year and only used it twice so we are determined to make the most of any opportunity that comes along.  Being at work all week it is nice to be able to spend a bit of time outside at the weekend.  But it's back to the grindstone tomorrow as hubby didn't win the lottery again lol.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Dream Valley Challenges.  Our theme for this fortnight is 

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Di's Digi Stamps with a prize of a $10 gift voucher for their on line store.

I went with a racing car theme and used this super little image from Crafts U Print.  I designed my own background using a stencil mask and some sparkle medium.  I did add a little mica powder to the background too in an attempt to make it look a bit more distressed.  A little ribbon across the centre just finished it off.  A simple easy card but great fun to do.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  For more inspiration just pop over to Dream Valley.  We are also having a DT call at the moment so why not try out.
