Colours of our World Challenge Winner!!!

Hi, everyone!

Thank you to all who linked a card for this month's challenge - Colours of Our World.  We also want to offer our sincerest thanks to Peggy of PegBoard Crafts for joining us as a Guest I-Teamer for this challenge.  Peggy designed our badge and blog header.  Thank you, Peggy!!!

All of the cards were great and in keeping with the challenge theme.  Choosing the winning entry this month was really difficult! 

After much deliberation, the card from Pawsitive Thoughts by Annie was chosen.   Her beautiful card was a great representation of the Colours of the World challenge.  She included all of the colors of the Olympic flag, her sentiment really works well with her fireworks background, and the jewels add great texture and interest.  Great job, Annie!!!

Please email BobbisTreasure at aol dot com to make arrangements for: receiving your stamp set, getting your W2SB badge, and learning more about being a Guest I-Teamer.  Annie, we would love for you to be the guest I-Teamer for April!

Sybrina has a great March challenge ready for us for W2SB #3 . Thinking green, St. Patricks, Mardi Gras?  Nope, not this March. 

Thanks again for joining us for W2SB #2 - Colours of the World.  Hope to see you all next month!

W2SB Challenge #2 - The Colours of the World

Thanks, Sybrina, for issuing a great, first Words 2 Scrap By Challenge.  Now it is my turn!

I love watching the Olympics.  The parade of nations during the opening and closing ceremonies is so moving and awe inspiring to me. I get a little choked up when I see the flags from the different countries, and of course, the Olympic flag flying over all of the others. 

The founder of the Modern Olympics, Pierre de Coubertin, said this about the Olympic flag:  

"The Olympic flag has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the centre: blue, yellow, black, green and red. This design is symbolic; it represents the five continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colours are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.

The games bring people from around the world together for camaraderie and competition.   

Our February Challenge is to create a card that celebrates the XXII Olympic games in Sochi, Russia.  Extra kudos if you use all of the colors on the flag!   

This month's prize package is from me!  A Bubble Bunny stamp set from My Favorite Things.  

The cards below were made by our founding Inspiration Team: Bernadette, Mary Anne, Penny, Bobbi, and me. In addition, we are thrilled to have Peggy from PegBoard Crafts as our guest I-Teamer this month.  Peggy designed the graphics for Words @ Scrap By!!!  Thanks so much, Peggy, for all of your support!!!

I just LOVE how Peggy wove the background from paper strips.  
The athletes are fulfilling their dreams of participating in the Olympics!!

Love how her flags echo the Olympic flag!!
Mary Anne
What a cheery card!  Her balloons are a perfect representation of the Olympic Rings!

What a fun combination of patterns that include the colors of the Olympic rings!

Check out the background she created using a spatter technique!!!  

The "scribbles" were created using Derwent watercolors pencils.  

So, now it's you turn!!  hanks for joining us for this month's challenge!
