Think in thirds on this one -
Here's the challenge:
Take an image (digi, stamp, etc.) and break it down into thirds - 1/3 no color, 1/3 patterned paper, 1/3 hand colored (markers, colored pencils, chalks, paint, etc.).
It doesn't have to be in perfect thirds, just broken down into three parts
Here is what I did and I don't like it
but my printer is out of ink and it was all
I could think of...

I love these DIY challenges because they are a reminder to us all that we don't necessarily have to own store-bought embellies - we can create them ourselves!
Here's the DIY challenge for today:
Do-it-Yourself, glittered brads and/or pearls.
Take a brad or a pearl, add a little glue and a little glitter, and you've got yourself some glittery goodness!!
and here is my card

I don't know about you, but I have some stencils tucked way back in a drawer that sadly never see the light of day. If that's the case for you, then it's time to blow off the dust and put them to work!
That's it - all you have to do is use a stencil to meet the challenge.

I was at the craft store the other day, just browsing as I often do....okay, maybe I picked up a few things...
Anyway, I noticed these little plastic containers that are used to make shaker cards - so cool! Now, I've seen these before, but it just clicked in my brain finally that we should have a noisy card challenge. You don't need to make a shaker card (but you sure can if you want to!). You could use some little jingle bells or other dangly items that will make noise when you shake the card.
Mine is a bit different
I used plastic wrap to make my noise

Here's the challenge: Take an image and do just a bit of paper piecing in order to raise some portion of it off the page to give it dimension. Do NOT raise up the entire image. This can be a stamped image or an image cut from patterned paper.
