Who is 100?

Well, not in 'years', for sure.

It's hard to believe, but the talented peeps of Mo's Design Team are celebrating 100 challenges this week from the very first in October, 2009. While that's certainly a lot of challenges, it's significant to know that each challenge was not only unique, but through the power of the internet, more and more viewers resulted in more fans for Mo's Digital Pencil... the word spread like wildfire and today, Mo has more than 1,000 followers on her challenge blog alone.

So, to 'celebrate' this momentus occasion, we are 'celebrating' too...  and that's the theme for this week's challenge. All you have to do to play along is make a card, 3-D paper project, scrapbook layout... or other project, to celebrate something.

I usually keep my cards quite simple and tailored... at least that's the style I like to think I follow. This little cutie is the happy 'digi' centerpiece for my card.



I colored with Copic markers, but added a bit of depth using Prismacolor pencils. I love the combination of salmon and aqua. The corner punch is a Fiskars punch I treated myself to recently (and I wasn't convinced I should keep). The background is sponged with Versa Magic chalk ink in Sea Breeze which is always perfect to give the illusion of a soft sky background.
Since this challenge represents a huge milestone, there will be three (3) winners selected from the challenge entries this week, and each will get (are you ready for this???)...
  •  three rubber stamps,(from the collection at Stampin' Bella)
  • a signed original sketch - from Mo's design sketches
  • and a $10 shop credit to Mo's store
Sure wish I could win!!  I do hope that you will join us this week as we celebrate 100 challenges. Best of luck to everyone in the drawing!  Thanks so much for stopping by, friends. Have a fantastic week.

Peggy, this is so pretty! I think it's a great time to celebrate. In fact, I see nothing wrong with starting to celebrate a special occasion a couple of weeks early (wink) and take it on out a couple of weeks after (wink)! In any case, it's good to see you back at Mo's this week! You've been a busy gal! Sending big hugs.
