March 31st Challenge #8

This week has flown over for me, it doesn't seem like 2 minutes since I was setting last weeks challenge....... lol
It's been great looking at your blogs and lovely to see some new people joining us too, everyone is welcome!
The winner of Challenge # 7, chosen at random using Random.Org is
#1 - Jane Middleton
Jane please can you email me, Karen (email in the sidebar) and I'll send you the details for how to claim your $15 prize from Simon Says Stamp.
If the prize isn't claimed by Friday, then I'll draw another winner.

As from next week our challenges are changing slightly. We're going to have a sketch every other week and a theme for the weeks inbetween. Just gives a bit of variation for you all and that way we can see how you work on your own cards.
We're also going to be giving badges to our winner and also pick a top 3, you will also be given a badge to wear on your blogs. And not to be left out, we'll be giving a badge to our GDT member too.

This week sees the first challenge for our new DT members. I'm sure you'll have seen their lovely work while hopping around in blogland. Our sponsor this week is Willow Designs and the prize is a CD with a selection of downloads designed by Sharon and a pack of ProMarkers.
Here's the CD.Here's the sketch for you all to follow and we'd like to see swirls/flourishes on your project too. Please remember to be entered into the prize draw you must follow the sketch and theme.And for some inspiration, here's what the DT did with the sketch and theme.
