First Challenge & Freebie

Welcome to the first challenge here at Platypus Creek Digitals blog.

The rules are pretty simple:

Create a card or project following the current challenge theme.
You may participate using any image that you like, but for a chance to win the prize you must use a Platypus Creek Digitals image (or cutting file) as your main image.  Freebies that I have offered are fine.
You may combine your entry with other challenges, and you may enter the challenge more than once.
Each entry must be a new submission created on or after the date of the challenge.  No back linking please.
When adding your entry, please link your entry directly to your blog post or gallery post.  
You must mention Platypus Creek Digitals and link back to this blog from your post. 
Prize will be drawn at random from eligible entries and the winner will be announced when the next challenge is posted.
A new challenge will be posted every second Monday, and you will have until Sunday at 5pm Brisbane time (the day before the next challenge is posted) to add your entry.


So on to our first challenge, and for this one I have a sketch for you.

The prize for the winner of this challenge is any 4 Platypus Creek Digitals files.
(Digi stamps, cutting files or background papers).


As well as the challenge I also have a free digi set to share with you here today.

This is a permanent freebie and will be added to the freebie page.

Here are some samples I've created using the above sketch.
