Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges June Challenge

Wow!!  I can’t believe it is June 1st!!  My little kindergartners had their graduation program yesterday and they did an awesome job.  Needless to say, it was a crazy day and I went home and crashed.

Well, since June has snuck up on us, it is time for a new challenge at Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges.  But first let’s announce the May winners:

Grand Prize Winner (Stamp set of choice): 
Desire Fourie

Top 3 Winners : 
Kimberly C.
Lou Simes


For the June Challenge we have a sketch for you.

You can use any image, digital or a rubber stamped, to create your submission.  Of course we'd love it if you used a Sparkle N Sprinkle Rubber Stamp or a Sparkle N Sprinkle digital image, and if you do, you will receive this free digi for June:

The code to use for this month's challenge is SNSSC20.

Here my card, using the sketch.

I started with some lovely decorative cardstock and used the little birds from the new SNS set, Bird Song, heat embossed with Log Cabin EP. The sentiment is from the SNS set, Nature, heat embossed with Bullfrog EP.  I cut up a green Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish die cut and tucked them around the handmade flower that fellow designer, April Williams, shared with me.  I see a tutorial coming for this great flower on a future Technique Tuesday!

Head over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges blog for more inspiration from my fellow designers, along with all the challenge details and the link to post your creation.

Have a great weekend,

E. Marie
