#TGIFC 53 - TGIFC Turns One

Today we are celebrating an awesome milestone at TGIF Challenges Headquarters and that is TGIFC is one year old. 52 wonderful weeks of creative challenges. Its all just a little bit exciting. I have only been on the Design Team for a short while but I'm very excited to be celebrating this fantastic achievement with the rest of the crew.

Thirdly, we also have our weekly challenge at TGIFC and this weeks challenge celebrates our Mums with a Mother's Day Challenge.

My card for this weeks challenge uses the Rose Garden Thinlit Dies and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

The colour combination was inspired from the challenge over at Global Design Project #GDP032- Case The Designer Krista Frattin. So loving the pink and white. So pretty. I love playing along at GDP when I get a chance.

I started with a water colour wash background on Shimmery White cardstock and then I flicked Gold Wink of Stella for more of a splattered shimmer to the background. It all then built from there. I love the shimmer from Shimmery White cardstock. I don't think I'll ever use normal Whisper White cardstock again. The White and Blushing Bride colour combination is just so gorgeous!

I cut out two of the rose dies so that I could have the solid Blushing Bride outline with the Love Blossoms DSP pieced into it. It is then accented with the leaf die cut out of Gold Foil and Shimmery White.

Its all finished off with some Burlap Trim, Crochet Trim, Gold Metallic Thread and some clear sequins from the Metallic Sequin Assortment.

Make sure you check out all the other fantastic creations from the rest of the Design Team at TGIFC. Remember to mention TGIF Challenges in your blog post and when sharing your project on social media, please use this weeks hashtag- #TGIFC52.
