January Sketch and Dare Challenge by Tonya Gibbs


Happy New Year!  Where has the time gone?
This week we say goodbye to 2014 and hello to 2015.  
What better way than a new  Sketch & Dare Challenge.

Here is a glimpse at this month's sketch:




This month's dare is to use something PINK! 



********************************************************************* 


  1. Use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation.
  2. Use the SKETCH! It can be interpreted (loosely or exactly) as a card, layout or altered piece!
  3. Incorporate the DARE into your creation.
  4. Mention the Die~Namites Die you used in your blog post.
  5. Link back to the Die~Namites Die.
  6. You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog and link up to this post.  **PLEASE add a link to your direct post, not your entire blog.**

Each participant will receive one entry into our random drawing
for each entry into the challenge.

 A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants for a
$25 Gift Certificate to Die~Namites Dies.

********************************************************************* 


Today I used these Die-namites Dies:

 Large Ivy Die



I decided to cut the Flowering Branch from a soft green scrap paper.  To keep my card delicate, I used the Large Ivy die that I had cut from white card stock.  



I used a gold thread in the background of the flower clusters.  Then used a few Prima flowers for my focal point.  I just love how the Flowering Branch and the Large Ivy Die complement each other in this floral spray. The doily really softens up the entire cluster.  



I hope you have time to join us in the fun this year.
Remember to visit this post to link up your entry before January 31.
I  can't wait to see what you create. 

Thanks for stopping in today, 

Tonya Gibbs

  9. I would love to enter this challenge but I only have one die from your line so I am a bit hampered. I was wondering if I could use other brands of dies along with it? If not, I will try to make a project regardless!
