Outlawz Progressive Freebie Challenge for March

So, the calendar says March 1st..................sure doesn't feel like it. Cold here and snowing again! But looking on the bright side, we have a new March challenge for our Progressive Freebie challenge at the Outlawz.

We had a great amount of participants in February and hope to have even more for the month of March. If you took part in this progressive challenge in February, you will automatically receive by email the March image. If you didn't take part but want to, it is easy to join the fun.

First, you must be a member of the Outlawz. If you aren't a member, just drop by and ask to join. After your request is approved, you can join the Progressive Challenge or any of our other seven challenges.

Next, you will need to register to play. Do this by sending an email to the address on the challenge page with your name and email address and your image will be sent to you.

Now, to get to the new challenge! Our image for March has been donated by Gerda Steiner Designs. She has generously given a cute little digital image for us to use, Elephant and Bird. Be sure and read the Terms of Use on the challenge page. And please show your support for Gerda by visiting her online store.

Here is the card I made with Gerda's image, Elephant and Bird.

I used Copic markers to color my image. The Happy Birthday is a gold peel-off sticker by Starform. After I colored my image, I used Spellbinders Fancy Threader Die to make my die cut. Then, I threaded some dotted ribbon through the ribbon holes and threaded some twine through the small holes.

We hope you will enjoy playing with the lovely freebies we have lined up for you and we also have some prizes along the way! All members that play each month for six months will be entered into a draw for a $20 GC to be used at one of our sponsors' stores!

The rules are very simple: join the challenge, join the progressive/freebie group, send us an email to register and then enter a project made with the image supplied before 6:00 p.m. EST on the last day of the month and you will automatically get the next image. If for any reason you don’t get your project made and you would like to rejoin us, you can buy the image of the month from the sponsor's store and as long as you enter it before the end of the month you will get the next one free and you will then get them automatically each month you enter a project.
Please do not add your image to Pinterest, or your blog or anywhere it can be copied from without a watermark. You can not share these images with anyone – if your friends or family want them send them HERE to join in and get their image or if they don’t want to join the challenge please send them to the sponsor's store to purchase the image.
When you have made your project please place it onto the challenge page for March, enter it into the Gallery (use the tag PF04 for the March challenge) and the March Inlinkz to be entered into the draw for the site wide prizes from our other wonderful sponsors – check out the Outlawz side bar for this month’s prizes!
