It’s time for another Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge, but we have some extra fun this week! Along with our challenge, the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge Design Team is having a blog hop to introduce you to the October Digi Release. We are all pretty excited about that!  Links to all the participating blogs are below.

This week’s challenge is Using Metal. Use any sort of metal embellishment on your creation – brads, decorative clips, ribbon slides, even wired ribbon. Use one piece of metal or several – it’s up to you! Just keep in mind the guidelines for Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenges:

  • Please use digital images ONLY for the focal point of your creation(s) for this challenge.
  • Be sure to link your creation(s) to the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge blog. Every card you enter in our challenges throughout the month of October gives you one chance to win 3 digital stamps of your choice from the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps store! So the more you play, the more chances you have to win!
  • Sweet ‘n Sassy digital images are not required, but we really love it when our challenge participants use them! Every week, one participant who uses a Sweet ‘n Sassy digital image is spotlighted. We feel that our challenge participants who use Sweet ‘n Sassy images deserve a little extra recognition.
  • When uploading to online galleries, please use keyword SNSDC76.

I’ve used the new Kiwi’s Gift digital image for today’s card.  Isn’t Kiwi adorable?  Although all the images being released today are Christmas-y in nature, I wanted to show how this one can be used any time of the year.  So I’ve created a birthday card with it.  I chose photo turns for my metal embellishment. The sentiment is from Masculine Birthday Greetings, another SNSS digital stamp set.  I took my color scheme from this week’s Splitcoaststampers.com color challenge, and the layout is this week’s SCS sketch challenge.

Now, here’s the list of the blog hop participants.  While you’re hopping, be sure to leave some love on each of the blog hop posts. One of the team members is a mystery blogger and she will be picking a random winner from the comments on her blog post! The winning prize will be the whole October Digi Release! How incredible is that?!? The winner will be announced on the Sweet ‘n Sassy Digi Challenge site on Friday, October 26.
