ATS challenge time!

Hiya! How's it goin'?

Are you ready for a brand new challenge at All That Scraps this week? This time it's all about creating an easel card. If you haven't made one yet I promise that they are not hard at all. I was scared of them for a bit but once I made my first one I quickly realized there was nothin' to it. And they are so perfect for when you've spent a good amount of time creating a special scene and really want to show it off. :)

For my card I used the CC Designs Gingersnaps Bugg-a-boos set and I altered them slightly by wiping away their original eyes and drawing in new eyes, eyebrows and even some freckles. Oh and I also used the stump stamp from CC Designs to help create the scene too. I pulled all of the colors I used from the fab, new Green at Heart BG papers... LOVE them and love how bright and cheery the little bugg-a-boos turned out.

So now it's your turn and I look forward to seeing what everyone creates for this week's challenge! Remember, every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your card must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!
