...TGS56: On The Edge For Jessica's Birthday!!!


This week’s challenge is not only brought to us by Jessica...but it is also FOR JESSICA! Today is her birthday, and we are celebrating it with a Bday Blog Hop...so if you've come here from KIM'S BLOG, then you're in the right place.  If not, you will want to start out at the TSG Blog and go from there!  Jessica is challenging us to create a card that includes these TWO features: altered corners (rounded, ticket, scallop, etc) and a border punch on one of the layers. You can have as many border punched layers as you want on your card, but there has to be at least one to qualify for this challenge. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes altered corners and a border punch, then go to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (May 31st). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG56 so we can check out your beautiful work!

Need some inspiration to help you get started? Then head over to the TSG Blog to see the complete Blog Hop List of Trendsetters.

That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you again tomorrow with another Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  Until then...head on over to PAM'S BLOG for your next stop along the hop! :)
