The Very First Chicks Inspiration Challenge: Week 1!

It's here, it's here! It's Tuesday morning and it's finally here - the very first Chicks Inspiration Challenge! And here is your very first inspiration photo!

Just look at the picture and let it lead you anywhere you want to go! Maybe the colour combination speaks to you, or maybe the positioning of certain items inspires you. You might get distracted by one tiny element that reminds you of your favourite embossing folder. It's all good! There are no rules! We'll even get you started with samples made by us and our hand picked guest designers. Just make a card with anything you like and link it up using Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post before midnight on Monday, March 29, 2009. If you are uploading to a public gallery such as Splitcoast Stampers, please include the code CHIC1 in your keywords so that we can see all the cards for the challenge in one place. And of course, feel free to mention our blog and the challenge by name in your description!

We'll be picking our favourites and announcing the top five next Tuesday along with a new challenge for you to try. If your card is selected for the top five, you will be invited to be a guest designer for the following week's challenge. Awesome!

If you're new to challenges, or unsure how to participate, simply click on the "tutorials" label on the right side of the blog. You'll find easy step by step instructions for everything you need to know to play!
