July 2008 Challenge at Go. Be Creative.


This month's challenge over at GBC is a great one!  Each month, those who buy the kit get the chance to participate in a fun challenge and the chance to win $25 for purchasing whatever you want at the GBC store!  This challenge is only open, as I said, to those who are monthly kit club members so if you like what you see from me using GBC items, be sure to buy the kit and even better sign up to get future ones!!  The price decreases per kit the more months you sign up to buy.  Also, you can skip months if you already have the products in it, or for other reasons, you are just obligated to buy the number that you specified - not necessarily in consecutive months.

So, the challenge was to "Sand it, Tear it, and Antique it" because in this kit were some yummy Core'Dinations Card Stock colors that look really great when you do this to them.  So, I made this card with a future challenge of my own that I will be posting at GBC in mind - stay tuned for that - it's a challenge that's open to EVERYONE who has a username (free) at GBC, not just kit club members.

Hope you like the card, and everything but the brad is part of the July Coconut Mango kit.  I even used some of the clear transparency that was in the kit - too fun!!!
