Time to GET FUNKY

Today sees the launch of a new monthly challenge blog for Funky Hand, called Get Funky, and the whole design team have been very much involved in the setting up of the blog, so we are all excited about it. We are all going to take it in turns to set the challenges, but the first one was set by Anice, the lovely owner of FH, and she came up with this sketch
Here's mine, I used papers called Saturday lie-in from the Funky Daze CD, the papers are a joy to work with because everything coordinates so beautifully

I pleated a piece of paper to give a twist to the ribbon, the border was cut with Martha Stewart lattice arch punch


I cut a flower out freehand, then used that as a template to draw another flower, but cut that one about 1/4" inside the line to make it a bit smaller. The centre circles were punched out of the pattern paper and the top one has some black glitter glue, which doesn't show up in the photo



There is a £20 ($33) gift voucher for Funky Hand for the winner of this challenge, all you need to do is make a card following the sketch using one funky hand product. Haven't got any? No worries - Anice has put a free download of some great papers on the blog, so you can get crafting. Wherever you are, in your little corner of the world, get funky with us, we would love to see a lot of lovely entries, and we will all pop over to your blogs to see what you've been up to. Don't forget, you have a whole month to do this, the next challenge will be on the 1st September - blimey, where did summer go.....
