SeemaCrafts - Mixed Media Challenge

WOOHOO My first Design Team piece for 'SeemaCrafts'

Junes Challenge is 'Mixed Media' and opens for enteries on the 1st June 2013. For this challenge we would like people to use your imagination and think outside the box.
We love cards being entered, however this challenge is for people to get messy and use what they have always wanted to use. Because of the theme, we would like more than just 'Paper, Ribbon and Embellishments' used on a card.
Mixed media can be from glass to wood to metal to inks to varnishes etc.....Raid your crafty stash and garages/sheds and let your creativity run wild :D
This challenge will run for a month over on SeemaCrafts
SeemaCrafts also have a website, youtube channel and a facebook group, please click the following links for further information:
This months challenge is sponsored by the amazing 'LEJ Designs'
