Celebrating again!! Challenge-1 with Colleen

Hello everyone!!

It feels like it's been only few days since I had written a post saying that I would be getting married soon! The truth is it's already been an year since I wrote that post! :) Here I'm, about to celebrate my first wedding anniversary this month! I felt it would be nice to share my joy with you!

Also, my blog completed an year on July 24th this year and unfortunately I didn't get much time to do anything for my blog. Now is the time to celebrate!

I'm going to host four challenges this month. THIS being the first challenge. All the challenges, irrespective of when they start are going to last till the end of Oct, i.e., 31st of Oct.

For the first challenge, I have a very special friend joining me with a gorgeous card to inspire you. She creates magic with just one or two layers. Her cards are ALWAYS elegant. I always feel drawn to her cards. She is sweet and always makes sure to leave a comment on her readers' blogs.

Want to know who she is? Colleen Dietrich she is... She writes a beautiful blog called Dietrich Designs. She immediately agreed to be my guest for one of the challenges when I asked her.

The theme for the first challenge is Wedding/Anniversary using Black & White/Cream with Lace.  

This is what Colleen has come up with... Hold your breath guys, for I almost fell off my chair when I saw it! Isn't it gorgeous? It's beyond words! Thanks so much Colleen for sharing this awesome card! :)


Do leave some love on her blog! :) Here is the link of the post where she blogged about her beautiful card.

This time, the challenges are open for international blogger pals as well! :)

The prize for the winner is a $10 gift certificate to Doodle Pantry store. They have awesome digital stamps and I fell in love with them! I'm sure you too would like them. :)

Challenge rules- There aren't many rules...
1. Please link only cards.
2. Follow the theme.
3. Please enter cards made after this date, i.e., no back linking please!
4. Link your blog post and not your blog.

5. You can enter as many times you wish. Feel free to link up to as many other challenges you want to.
6. In your blog post, please mention that I'm celebrating so that your friends/ readers can play too.

So, that is it for now, looking forward to receiving your beautiful entries!

All the best!!
