I can't believe it, I won the August Card of the Month challenge at Creative Expressions !

The challenge was to create a card using Cosmic Shimmers. I used Pearl Gold from their Iridescent Pigment Mica Cosmic Shimmers, and Big n Juicy foliage faux brayered, also the Trees stamp plate together with some stamps from the Canal and Seasonal Flora range.

The prize is 50 stg worth of Cosmic Shimmer goodies! I've been lusting after more of these for ages.

Why don't you enter their September Card of the Month challenge, which is to use anything from the Eco Green range? I watched Sheena use the fabulous Eco paints at a workshop in Perth this year. These are amazing paints and Sheena demonstrated a crackle technique which she then painted over in a folk painting style. You may have seen them demonstrated by Julia Andrus (who invented them) on Create & Craft.

Creative Expressions also have a Facebook group which can be found here

I had no sooner peeled myself off the ceiling after getting that news than the courier arrived with my new Cuttlebug!

I am officially in crafting Heaven!
