Default SNSS Inspiration Challenge #12 - with a GIVEAWAY{11-01-11}

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is celebrating FOUR FABULOUS YEARS this month! To add a little fun to the birthday festivities, I'll be sharing a birthday-themed inspiration picture every Tuesday this month (but that does not mean you have to make a birthday card!). AND.....there will be prizes! First, check out this yummy cupcake:

Here's how to play along:

Using the picture above (and attached below), make a card, project, altered item, or anything else your mojo inspires you to make. It can be based on the colors, the textures, the theme...anything! I've pulled out a few colors, for those of you who love to use them as your jumping off point. I've also highlighted a few of the different textures and patterns in the picture, in case you'd rather use those as inspiration. Remember, there is no right or wrong, just be inspired and have fun! Upload your art to the gallery here at SCS, and use the keyword SNSSIC12 (note: you do not have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps image to play along, but to be considered for the Sweet 'n Sassy Spotlight you do). Feel free to add the link to your gallery upload here in this thread! While there is NO time limit to play along in this challenge, we'll post a new one each Tuesday morning!

Now for some details on the prizes: EACH week we'll be giving away one stamp set to a random player in the inspiration challenge. To be eligible for this week's giveaway, you must have your card uploaded with this challenge's keyword no later than Monday, Nov 7 at 11:59 PM EST. I'll announce the winner with the new challenge on Tuesday, Nov. 8th. Because we want people to play whenever thay have time, we'll do a second drawing at the end of the month from ALL of the challenges - so you actually have two chances to win! If you win one of the weekly prizes, you are still eligible to win the extra prize at the end of the month.

Oh - make sure you use the challenge keyword when you upload. You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps image (but we love it when you do). If you don't, just the challenge keyword is all you need. If you do use one of our stamps, make sure to add one of our keywords as well.

Here is my sample: Birthday CherriesI needed to make a birthday card for DH, so I skipped the pink and focused on the theme of the picture, the "cherry on top" and the color scheme.

You can also see my sample and the challenge photo attached below.

Here is the whole challenge gallery.

If you aren't familiar with our general challenge guidelines, I encourage you to check them out. Also, if you are unfamiliar with uploading here at SCS, this may help: Sharing Your Art in the Gallery.

Smile My Card

Hi Taylor!

As soon as I saw those sprinkles I instantly pictured the So Sweet Cocoa image of him peeking through the sprinkled donut hole. Here is my card. I hope you like it!
