SNSDC59 June Digi Release Blog Hop & Challenge

It's time for another Sweet `n Sassy Digi Challenge but it is also Digi Release Day. To celebrate the new digi designs, the ladies of the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Design Team have put together a little blog hop.

Have fun hopping along but here's a hint: You will want to leave some love on each of the Design Team posts. One of the team members will be picking a random winner from the comments on her post but it's a mystery as to which member gets this honor.

The winning prize will be the whole June Digi Release! The winner will be announced at Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge Blog on Friday, June 29th.

And now for today's challenge...Bling It On.

Please keep in mind as you play along to ONLY use digital images for the challenge. You don't have to use SNS digi images to play along but we sure love it when you do. Please share a link to your creation using the Linky feature at the end of today's Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge post. If the link feature is down, please add a link with your comment. When uploading to online galleries, please use keyword SNSDC59.

For every card you link to the Challenge Blog throughout the month of June, you will receive one entry in the monthly drawing. One lucky winner will receive 3 digital images of his/her choice from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store. Please note, if you use SNSS digital images to create your project, you will receive two entries! Be sure to play along every week... The more you play and/or use SNSS digis, the more chances you have to win!

My card uses the new Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Graduate Rhubarb. The sentiment is from the Graduation Digital Stamp set. After printing the sentiment on My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose patterned paper, I created panels and added them to the card base. I then printed Rhubarb on Copic X-Press It Blending Card, colored him with my Copics, die-cut and adhered him to the base. My 'Bling' is actually Enamel Accents by Ranger.

Please hop along to see more creations using the new, June Release Sweet 'n Sassy Digital Stamps.
