Challenge #13 - So Charming


I hope you all had a great week! It's Vanja here, again.
I have chosen a very Charming theme this week - I would like you to add charms to your creations. Simple as that! :)

This week our sponsor is again the lovely Susie from Die Cut Dreams!

She is offering a fabulous prize, as always, to one lucky participant. Check out the picture bellow:

Book and plate standing card Kit. The kit contains 24 large pieces ; 8 card backs, 8 card fronts and 8 card stands .
The kit makes 8 complete cards for the winner to decorate in their own style, the round plate cards fit in 6" square envelopes and the book cards fit into C6 envelopes (envelops on included in the kit)

Susie is our Guest Designer, here is her fantastic creation. She used the Ellephantastic Sketchy Winter Scene.

And here is some more inspiration from our regular DT:

Helen made this adorable hanger using one of Susie's large scallop circle die cuts which is part of the prize and she also used Ellephantasti digis H alpha.

Vanja (me) - I used one of Helen's new images from Keep it in the Family range - Charlotte halloween.

As usual, to participate in this weeks challenge, just add your link to inlinkz, please link directly to your blog post, link to a new project and only one entry per person.

The challenge is open till Friday, October 1st, 9 pm GMT.
