Challenge 5 Bling It Up

Good morning everyone. It's challenge time again, but first I have the winners from Challenge 4-Fancy Folds to announce. 

 As outlined in the rules you must use a Platypus Creek Digitals file ( freebie or purchased) somewhere on your project to qualify for the main prize. 

 The winner of the main prize this week is #6 Natalie. Natalie created a super cute card using the digi image Lily.

 I've also decided to offer up a second prize of one digital file from all the remaining participants. So the winner this week of any one digi file is #8 Darlene 

 Congratulations to both winners. Please contact me at to claim your prizes.

Starting with Challenge 5, we will also be picking a top three from all the participants of the challenge. This will be chosen by the Design Team. I will add a top three badge to the sidebar for the winners to display on their blogs.

Ok, on to this week's challenge-Bling It Up!

This week you will need to include Bling on your project.  This can be glitter, diamantes, pearls etc.  You can use as little or as much as you like, just so long as there is something blingy somewhere on your project.

The main prize this week is any 4 Platypus Creek Digi files.
The second prize (all participants eligble) is 1 platypus Creek Digi file.

Here are some samples from the Design Team:

Lisa using the digi image Belle

Chaitali using the cutting files Layered Flower and Leaf Set.

Tracey O using the digi image Sugar Skull

Denise using the free image Flower 1

Be sure to head over to the Design Team's individual blogs to check out more of their fantastic work.

To enter the challenge please upload your project giving the direct link to your project and not your general blog address.
Don't forget if you use a PCD file somewhere on your project you will be in the draw for the main prize.

Thanks for playing along.

Challenge 4 Fancy Folds

Good morning everyone. 

It's time again for another challenge.  This week the challenge is to create a project using a fancy fold. 

If you are making a card this can be anything except your standard single fold card, so maybe an easel card or a gate fold card.  

If you are doing a layout you could make something that folds out or maybe a clever little pocket.

The challenge is open to everyone, just remember to use a Platypus Creek Digital file to be in the running for the prize. (You may use any of my freebies and still qualify for the prize.) 

The prize this week is any 4 Platypus Creek Digital files. (Cutting files, papers or digital images). 

This week I have a little cupcake freebie to share with you as well. This is a limited time freebie and will only be available until close of this challenge.
