Here we are a yEar on and Allsorts Challenge has become so popular and exceeded all our expectations. So we want to say thanks to you lovely blogErs who keep coming back week after week.
Of coursE we have some special Birthday celebrations planned as you might expect.

All the details arE the on the Allsorts Challenge blog. And our very first sponsor Sir Stampalot have provided a fab Heritage Glimmer Kit for the challenge winnEr and as this is a special week we also havE a second prize from another of our regular sponsors Digi Stamp Boutique
For our Birthday I have crEated an easel card and matching gift box. The main image is Hero Arts S5362 Dogwood which I stamped out several times, cutting some out to decoupage and colouring all with a mixturE of Copics and Marvy pens, inked with versamark frost and spritzed with Glimmer Mist pearl to help the colours blEnd and give a nice sheen.
The Basic GrEy DP is one of their lovely new designs courtesy of Stampalot of course and the borders Martha Stewart eyElet lace, ribbon, pearls and punched leaves added to Embellish.
