I kicked us off with the "Opening Ceremonies" challenge. To create a card using the colors of the flag from one of the participating countries. I created my card using Melanie's "School, Sports, Spirit!" set with the colors of the American flag. Go Team USA!! Next up was Dawn with the "Chill Out" challenge. For my card I used Nina's fun new set "Heartily Yours". I used the crashed glass technique on the image panel.
Adelle then brought us the "Red Mittens" challenge. I loved working with Asela's set "Fruitful Harvest" in red and white for this challenge. And adding in the yarn was just fun!!!
The "Olympic Biatholon" challenge that Janet hosted was up next. Incorporating the chalkboard technique is usually something that just doesn't turn out right for me. For this card I used Stampin' Up!'s "Thoughts and Prayers" set.
This next challenge by Carole was a challenge...."The Slalom Course". We had to incorporate an "S" or a wave, white as the only neutral, the kissing technique and pink had to be included (as a tribute to one of my favoritest stampers, LuvLee). The CASE'd Theresa's card for this challenge since by this point my brain was just dead. I used Tami's new set "Happy Hearts" and realized I really need the matching punches.
