My Own Challenge Blog :)

Hi Everyone,
I hope you have room for another challenge blog on your list as I've started one of my own!
Cooking It Up With Katie will have a challenge every other Thursday and they will all be "recipe" challenges.
Just like a cooking book I'll give you the basic recipe and you "cook up" the rest!
For now it'll only be me with the examples but if we get popular I may well invite a few guests to join us!
All the rules and details are over at the challenge blog
Challenge #1 is:
Use 1 image
Add 2 different shapes to you project in any form you like
And use 3 Paper Embellishments, these can be store bought, handmade, punched, die cut, anything you like just make sure they are made of paper.

My card also includes challenges from other sites.
The color inspiration came from Basic Grey Challenges and the sketch came from Allsorts (they wanted any 2 colors too so I pulled the Blue and Green from the Basic Grey inspiration).
Also a good friend of mine runs a color challenge blog at Easy Breezy "Kewl" Colour Challenges and this weeks challenge is Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Basic Gray and Burmuda Bay and I think my blue and green color scheme fits in with that fine!
Also I found another challenge blog that was new to me (and I love the name as admit we all call it C^@p at times! Scrap Your Crap wanted you to use you chipboard and I'll admit to having tons and not using it like I should. So I added chipboard circle with heart centers that I inked.

The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and it's a trio set of 3 teen images.
Mo Manning was orignally a children book artist but has branched out into digital images and I'm so thankful she did! Her work is fabulous, different from other out there and so wonderful to color.

Here you can see the inside is more of the wonderful Basic Grey paper from the Phoebe collection and I added a heart to the message mat.

I wonder who she's thinking about?

Anyway, I'd love it if you could join in with my challenge and if you could spread the word to others that would be great too! The more the merrier and I can't wait to see what you come up.
Go over NOW and join in!
