hello and welcome to a very special caardvarks challenge! what's so special about it, you ask? well, this time our sponsor is hero arts, makers of awfully fabulous rubber stamps & accoutrements. they were kind enough not only to offer the prize, but they also sent along some verrrrrrry cool products for the design team to try:
so of course we have a bigger-than-usual gallery crammed full of glorious eye candy: cards, projects, all sorts of great stuff! in addition, we are honored to have a celebrity guest designer, none other than ms. jennifer mcguire!
but what IS the challenge? you have until midnight april 3rd to make a card based on this rather gorgeous sketch by my massively talented fellow caardvark, heidi van laar:
is that a great sketch, or what? so simple, yet elegant...you could do ANYTHING with that baby, dontcha think?! i know i couldn't fit all my ideas into just ONE card...i had to make two!
