Fred She Said's 1st Monthly Challenge!

Oh My Goodness, Blogland just keeps getting better & better, doesn't it? Looky who has a challenge blog now...FRED SHE SAID! And we are sooo excited for you to come play with us!!!

My card used Tracey's newer FSS bracket border set. There are five different borders to choose from and if you know Tracey, she's included soooo much more! The SU! cs is lavendar lace and celery. The sentiment is CG, the doily punch Martha Stewart and the embossing CB swirls! Of course there is glitter & bling!!!

So what is the challenge you ask: to use the FSS challenge blog header and background as inspiration for your card, layout or altered project. If you don't have any FSS images, no worries, there are a bunch of FREEbies on the blog to choose from! These challenges will be MONTHLY!

Checkout the rest of the FSS girls...
