Challenge Me Friday

Hello Sweet Peeps!

It's Tracy here with the first Challenge Me Friday post!  Every Friday I will be introducing you to a fun challenge blog and offer advice on how to enter challenges, where to find challenges, and why to enter challenges.

Today, I will be discussing the reasons why I like to enter challenges...and why you are going to want to enter in them too : )

1.  I love a good challenge because they help me to think outside the box, use supplies that I may not otherwise use, and give me lots of inspiration!
2.  It's a great way to get your name out there and meet other people.
3.  Most of the challenges out there offer a great prize if your card is a winner or sometimes just for entering!  Yay for prizes!
4. It's so fun to see how everyone interprets the challenge and how many different types of cards there are.

 I decided to make a card for the Runway Inspired Challenge.

The inspiration for this week straight from the runway:

 This Runway Inspired Challenge is a challenge where you use a photo as the inspiration for your card.  I pulled the silver/gray, light purple, and coral color from the photo and used those colors on my card.  This color combo is awesome!

Wanna see the card I made to play along in the challenge?!?!

Here it is.....
Those flowers from the Lil Sweet Peps set are my favorite!  They are so easy to cut out and you can layer them for a different look.  

I have a little secret for matching the coral mat to the coral flowers.  I used the same ink (Hero Arts Pale Tomato) to ink the edges of a piece of white card stock as I did to stamp the flowers.  That way the colors are exactly the same and I didn't have to find matching paper!  Cool, huh?

Thanks for joining me on this Challenge Me Friday and I hope that you have been inspired to join some more challenges!  Let me know what challenges you love to participate in!  I would love to see what you are making!

*Don't forget about the Use What You Have Challenge going on right here on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog.  There is an awesome prize up for grabs that you are going to want to win!
