Imagination Crafts First Challenge

Hi Folks
Yippee!!!  It is an exciting day today as it sees the start of Imagination Crafts first challenge.  I was delighted to be chosen for the design team and hope you will join in with our challenges.  Challenges will run on a monthly basis and the design team will pop up again on the 15th of the month with some more inspiration for you. 

Our first challenge is a nice easy one for you
Anything goes

Here is my inspiration project using various products that can be found at Imagination Crafts.  The background was created by using distress ink to colour some white card.  I then added a light layer of sparkle gel and when it was dry I embossed it with a diamond stencil.  
For the flowers I used a stencil called Summer Blossom and sparkle medium.  I created some flowers on both white card and acetate using Sparkle Medium and cut them out when they were dry.  I then arranged these with some die cut leaves to create a little arrangement in the corner.  The sentiment is also a stamp from Imagination Crafts and was cut out using a spellbinders die.  Some little punched butterflies finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to pop over to Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog.  The design team have produced some wonderful creations for your inspiration.  You can upload your entry there and find full details of the challenge rules.  All we ask is that you use some Imagination Crafts products on your entry.
