Happy World Card Making Day... and a giveaway.

Hello!
Today is World Card Making Day, and Studio Calico are joining in the celebrations. They have a fab promotion available (HERE) along with some fun card challenges with prizes and even the opportunity to win a spot as a guest designer for a month in 2014. FUN!!
So the challenges are as follows:
Challenge 1 - Mood Board
Challenge 2 - Ombre
Challenge 3 - Use Your Scraps
Challenge 4 - Take 5
Challenge 5 - Sketches
So I played along with Challenge 4 - Take 5, and created a very colourful card with my Antiquary Kits that uses 5 different patterned papers. The red and orange are from the Card Kit (as are the sentiment stamps), the blue and yellow are from that gorgeous piece of Printshop paper in the Rome Add On, and the ampersand paper and green paper (as well as the gorgeous flower stamp) are from the Athens Add On. Repeat stamping like this is an awesome way to use up lots of itty bitty paper scraps that you might otherwise throw away. :)

I love a rainbow card. :)

I hope you get a chance to play along... Entering is easy, just upload any cards you create to the SC gallery and then go to the challenge page and leave a link to your card in the comments section. Enter lots of times and you have more chance of winning. Yay!

-------------------------------------- GIVEAWAY --------------------------------------

And to celebrate WCMD, how about a little giveaway.
I will send a mystery package of goodies to a randomly chosen commenter on this post. It will have lots of yummies in it, I promise. Just leave me a comment telling me if you are planning on creating anything this WCMD...
Deadline for entries is Wednesday 9th October. 
Bye for now.
