Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenge Debut

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's finally here - the first challenge post for Open-Minded Crafting Fun.  Every-other week the design team will be sharing projects using images from 4-5 different sponsors.
Our very first Challenge Theme is 
Use a New Toy or New Technique

My project uses an image by Milk Coffee Digital Stamps called Soya Takes a Nap.
 The new toy I used for this project is my eBosser!  I love using metal dies and the eBosser makes it so easy to use multiple dies in one cut AND there's no cranking!  Woohoo!
The dies I used are Spellbinders Lacy Squares and Le Papillions Two.  I also used a Die-Namics flourish.

 For my technique I'm using the Marbleized Background (Copic markers) as taught by Marie Gamber for Color Me Creative.  I hope you can see the wonderful sparkle on various parts of my card.  I used my new favorite product Wink of Stella brush glitter on the fairy's wings, the butterfly, the flower tips and the edge of the mat.  I love, love, love this product!

I would like to invite you to join in this new challenge.  Just visit Open-Minded Crafting Fun, view all the fabulous projects presented by our wonderful design team members and then link up your own project.  Each sponsor is offering a prize so you'll have multiple chances to win.
Challenge #1 sponsors and prizes:

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Thank you so much for visiting.  I hope you liked my project and will pass the word about this fun new challenge blog.  I look forward to seeing YOUR creation.
