Week #1 - "Elegant Shabby"

Using this photo for the color inspiration, create a card or project using pink, creme, red, green & brown. The photo is courtesy of: Better Homes & Gardens Creative Collection - Flea Market Style.

I am pleased to introduce the very first Guest Designer that will be playing along with us for our inaugural challenge ... none other than the super talented BETSY VELDMAN! I have been a fan of Betsy's work for oh so long and giggled with delight when she graciously agreed to take some time out of her busy schedule to join us for our challenge launch! Please hop on over to Betsy's blog when you have a minute and check out her beautiful creations ... simply gorgeous!

Just posted my card! Congratulations again on the blog, and thanks for the challenges and inspiration from the DT! I apologize for not linking directly to my project...I thought that may come in a later step of the linking process (still new at this) but I will know better next time. It should be my only post this week. Looks like you're getting plenty of other excited takers!!
