Default July Release Party Challenge #5

Hi, it's Bridget here with the 5th of our fun Virtual Stamp Day challenges for today's releases - an Inspiration Challenge using a photo with a summer picnic scene to give your creativity room to go in a lot of different directions! We can't wait to see what you come up with.




Here's a sample card I created using the pastel colors of the lanterns - blue, green, yellow and pink.




See the whole challenge gallery: SNSSJUL12RP05

Ready to play along? Here are some important details:

- Use the keyword SNSSJUL12RP05 when uploading to the gallery
- You don't have to use a Sweet 'n Sassy image to play (but if you do, add one of our keywords, too!)
- You'll have until Friday, July 13 at 3:00 PM EST to play along in any of our release day challenges.
- Each separate project will get you one chance to win the clear stamp set of your choice from the release. If you have a chance to play along with the challenges AND can upload your project to your SCS gallery by 10:00 PM EST today (Monday, July 9), you'll get an extra chance to win a clear stamp set from the release! AND, as if that wasn't enough chances, if you use any Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps clear stamp set or digi stamp, you'll get another chance to win!
- You are welcome to combine challenges, but you are only eligible to win one prize.

What a gorgeous photo!

I was inspired by the lanterns and the bright summery sky to create this CAS card using the new Dream Big stamp set:

I'm five hours ahead of EST so it's nearly bed time for me over here in Northern Ireland! But if you post a card for this challenge, I promise I'll check back in first thing when I get up in the morning to see what you've come up with!
