Fat-Tastic Tuesday Challenges Start Today! Challenge #1 - Birthday

Hello Crafters!
I've been waiting for this day for a long time. We are so excited over at Fat-Tastic Tuesday to finally be starting our challenges. Our challenges will run for two weeks and not only will we give you a theme to follow but we will have a sketch for you as well. We will also have an inspiration post on week two just to keep you interested (kind of sneaky, huh?). You are allowed to enter 2 times per week and must use the sketch to eligible to win. The top winner of our challenges will get to come back as the Guest Designer for our Inspiration Post in the next challenge. Our challenge is for 4"x4" Fat Pages, 4"x4" Cards, or 4"x4" Mini Books. We have some great sponsors lined up for you too. So, won't you join us? It's sure to be a fun time!

Our sponsors for this challenge are
3 digis of winners choice

5 digis of winners choice

As I said, our theme this week is birthday. Here's the sketch we have for you to use:
And here's my project for the first week:
Isn't this bear just the cutest image? I printed her out twice and colored her with my Spectrum markers then cut out her face, arms and foot pads from the second image and popped them up here. It really adds dimension to her. I also (although you can't tell here) put crystal lacquer on the little heart she's holding to add some dimension there as well. I started this project with craft card stock and layered with Recollections coordinating designer paper. The little pennants were punched from a SU punch but, I did cut them down a bit to fit this card. The bakers twine is from Memory Keepers and the bling is from my stash. I did turn the sketch 1/4 turn to the right in order to accomodate the image (totally allowed in the challenge).

Well, that's my first project for the first challenge for our brand spanking new Fat-Tastic Tuesday Challenge blog. Please check out the other designers projects as they are wonderful and be sure to play along! We would love to have you!

Happy Crafting!
