Challenge #10 All That Glitters

Welcome to our tenth and final challenge of 2014.  To reflect the beauty of the season, our challenge theme this time is "All That Glitters".  You needn't choose a holiday theme, but we'd love to see some sparkle and shine.  Mitzi and the team wish to thank you for your fabulous support this year and look forward an exciting new year of challenges in 2015.  Happy Holidays to each and every one of you and may the New Year bring you all good things!

Those using an Aurora Wings image  on all entries may enter up to THREE times, but those of you choosing a stamps from another company must limit your entry to ONE.  And please remember, we DO need to see a hand colored digital or rubber stamp , to be eligible. 

Our prizes each month will include:

1 (one) Artist's Choice Award Winner to be selected from entries using Aurora Wings digis ($20 GC and Badge)

1 (one) Random Winner ($20 GC)

Top 3 Winners to be chosen by the DT ($10 GC and Badge)

We are thrilled to have  a Guest Designer joining us this week.  Please welcome Laine Webb.

Entries posted prior to December 15th will be deleted. All entries must have a hand colored digital or rubber stamp on their completed project to be eligible. Please follow the chosen theme. ONE entry per person if not using an Aurora Wings image, THREE entry limit if ALL entries include an Aurora Wings stamp. You may enter your project in as many other challenges as desired. Please link to your POST address, NOT your BLOG address and link back to the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog. We would greatly appreciate you removing word verification and switching to comment moderation if you fear spam. In fairness to all, those not following the rules will be deleted. Thank you for your understanding and please have fun. We look forward to your fabulous creations.

Also, because of the difficulties we have experienced with Facebook entries, I regret that we will no longer be accepting them on the Challenge Blog.  I'm so sorry, but we do have our "Season's Greetings" contest currently running on our Facebook Group page, so you are welcome to post your appropriate entries there through December 31st.  Thank you for your understanding. 

However, if you do not have a blog and would still like to enter this challenge,  please email me at dlmundinger(at)gmail(dot)com with your name, a picture of your entry and Aurora Wings Challenge #10  in the subject line, and I will add it to the Linky so you can participate. Hopefully this will accommodate everyone.  xx
