Stampendous is so excited to be bringing something NEW to you! Each month on the first Saturday, we will share a brand new challenge with you - it might be a sketch, or colors, or a fun new technique to try. You'll have an entire month to play along with us! And what would a challenge be without a prize? We'll draw a random winner from all qualifying entries at the end of the month, who will win that month's prize. 



We're kicking off the new Stampendous Saturday Challenge with a Sketch for September, drawn by Wendy Price. To play along with us and be eligible to win the Cling Jumbo Romantic Border we're giving away this month, make a card or project using our sketch, upload it to your blog or other online gallery (keyword: STM01), and add the direct link to the linky tool on the Stampendous blog. You have until Thursday, September 29th at 11:00 PM PST to play! You don't have to use a Stampendous image or products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!



OK, for my card I tried something a bit different for me, its sort of a spotlight technique.  Based on our sketch I stamped the Eiffel Tower and some of the collage accessories from the Perfectly Clear Eiffel Tower set on my background.  I stamped it again then punched out pieces with circle punches and lined them up on top.  Lastly I added a touch of Silver Crushed Glass Glitter and  Pearlized Mica Fragments to the corners of the card panel.  Cardstock is from Bazzill and ribbon is from May Arts.


 
Be sure to head over to the Stampendous blog to check out all the details, see more inspiration from our designers, and to add your link to the linky tool!  

Also, stop by these blogs to see what my other Stampendous teammates have created with the sketch:
