Inkspirational Challenge #100~Blast from the Past!!

Hello!

Guess whaaaat??  Today is Inkspirational's 100th challenge!!!!

Our first challenge  was on January 2, 2013 and we are pleased to say that four of the original DT members (Sandie, Shauna, Yvonne and Marina) are still on the team. Another of the original members, Kylie, has not only agreed to be our Guest Designer, but also kindly offered to sponsor this challenge with a prize for a randomly drawn winner......



What are we inviting you to do for this celebration?  Turn back the hands of time and join us in
Inkspirational Challenge #100


Your mission, which I know you'll accept:  to select a previous COLOUR CHALLENGE and use that palette as inspiration for your card.  Easy peasy!  If you head over to the main blog, you'll see amazing cards created by our talented GD and sponsor, Kylie, along with my teammates: KimSandieMarinaPiaShauna and Nonni.  You'll also see a list of challenges/colours; pick one, pick four...come play along!

My card draws from Inkspirational Challenge  #32~Light Pink, Green Bean, White


These soft colours simply called for some stenciling and sponging...a pop of black and a trio of sparkles...


Quick and simple!  If I can do it, so can you!  Looking forward to seeing your *Blast from the Past* colour challenge in the gallery!
