Uniko Challenge #19

A very Happy Friday to all!

It is time for our new challenge at Uniko Studio and this time we are making it nice and easy for you as it is:

'Anything Goes'

We do have an optional twist for you-use this sketch if you want.

I do love this CAS sketch but decided to not twist along this week and made this:

I have used the new stamp set Balloon Bash and Simple Said Birthday to create this. Fellow teamie Nicki used a two tone stamping technique on her card here. I loved how realistic Nicki's card was so took a look at the video she recommended by Jennifer McGuire here. I had a go at this technique and loved it! (thanks Nicki for the tip!)

We are very happy to have joining us for this challenge these fabulous Guest Designers:

There blogs are full of inspiring projects. Take a few minutes to browse around their blogs and then take a look here to see what they and the rest of the DT have created for us.

We are joined for this challenge by a newest design team member Sarah. If you missed yesterday's welcome post then take a look and then visit her creative and inspiring cards on her blog Funky Fossil Designs.

Remember you can use any stamps to join in this challenge and here are the ways you can win some goodies:

-a random draw for a £10 Uniko gift voucher if you use the optional sketch

-the DT will choose a winner who will get a £20 gift voucher

-the DT will choose a top 3 and all will get a £5 gift voucher

Now that is a lot of inspiration to join in and you can let your creativity bloom as the challenge is:
