Around the World Challenge #1




Isn't this a great shot of a great spot? Are you inspired to make a card? Then visit Vicky's blog and enter her first Around the World Challenge!

Every Thursday, she'll post a photo of a different country as a photo inspiration. This week is a gorgeous photo of Greece, Vicky's home country.





When I saw the beautiful blue domes, it made me think of umbrellas.

So I made this card using the Pure Innocence image called My Umbrella.






After all card submissions are posted on her blog, you'll be able to vote for your favorite card using the new feature from Inlinkz. You can only vote once, but your friends and family can cast their votes for your card, too.

Did I mention Vicky's generous prize? A $25 gift certificate for Two Peas! Visit Vicky's post here to get all the details and join her challenge!

Stamps: My Favorite Things
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Patterned paper: Bo Bunny Dots
Ink: Memento
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, gemstones, pop dots,
Sharpie poster paint pen
