All you have to do is to pick a card that inspires you (check prima Marketing`s blog!) and share it on Prima Marketing`s Facebook Fan Page . Don`t forget to share your link on Prima Marketing`s Blog so we`ll find your card. 12 cards will be chosen and winners will be announced on November 30th.  Did I mention the winners will receive Prima goodies ;-)?

Well, today is day 9 and i had the honor to create a card for this challenge. You`ll find also instructions how to create one....if you want!

  • Attach the lamp in the middle of the notecard and on top to place the window resin.
  • Add the bird on the right side.
  • N.B. Before using the bird fetch away the needle!



STEP 5:

  • Begin in the middle using Interlude (light)gray rose.
