One winner will be homepage artist.  And ten will be chosen as Ginger Gems.   Please see all the amazing samples and get more information about the challenge here at Gingersnap Creations

My design team Ginger sample:
Card 4-3/4" x 6"
Patterned background papers:  DCWV Old World Stack.
Background scene from a sample digi sheet from Itkupilli
Boy King digital image from Gecko Galz free January ephemera set
Torn Paper with stamp image from printed collage sheet from Red Lead Paperworks

On a personal note:  Art is therapy.  This card was tearfully made in memory of my brother who passed away earlier this week.

Oh Helene. You are so right. Art is such a good therapy when you need to channel your thoughts either towards or away from something so sad as that.
It helped me before Christmas.


Keep making if you can.

This made me smile...reminds me of one of those paintings where you look for clues within the picture. Cleverly done. Take care you xx Jo
