Make It Different!

Welcome back and Happy Sunday to you all! For those of you in the US, I hope you had a nice Fourth of July!

First and foremost - I would love to introduce you to our FABULOUS Design Team!! We have broken them down into two groups, so you will see each team's wonderful creations every other week (for the most part anyway!)

They are a great group of UBER-TALENTED ladies and I can't wait to work with them and see their wonderful creations from week to week!!


Now - onto the challenge:

This week's challenge is to use THREE DIFFERENT EMBELLISHMENTS - your choice - but must be different types - so three ribbons would actually only count as 1 embellishment and of course - you must combine it with another current challenge.

Here is your first look at samples from some of our FANTASTIC Design Team members! Please refer to their blogs for more details on the challenges they used!:
