PCP Challenge with Effie Trinket from Hunger Games

Today I have something very special to share with you!  As you are aware, I am on the DT for Sassy Studio Designs and they are having a special challenge for you over on their Paper Craft Planet (PCP) site and offering you a FREE image of "Effie Trinket, from The Hunger Games" for 48 Hours (until Monday, May 7th at 9am EST) for you to use for this special challenge.

I think I may be the only person on this planet that has not read or seen the movie "The Hunger Games", so I was uncertain as to how to complete this challenge.  After seeing this gorgeous image and how elegant she looks, I decided to make a very girlie card to showcase Effie.  If there is anyone else out there like me, and not know anything about the real Effie, I wanted to show you that she can be used for everyday cards too because she is so beautiful =)

Pop on over to the PCP site to get your FREE Effie while she is available, then pop over to the Sassy Studio Designs blog for to see all the DT's inspiring samples as well as all the details on the challenge so you can join in.  There is an amazing prize for the winner of this challenge, the winner will receive TWO images from the upcoming release! They are brand new, never before seen and the winner will receive them before they are even released to the public on May 19th!  Sounds awesome right?!?!
