Wow! What a turn out for this challenge!  So many, that it was VERY hard for the designers to pick their favorites!  We did finally come up with our FIRST CLASS winner:  #63 Wishcraft! Here's her fabulous card:

And our IN THE MAILBOX winners:  #4 Tommi, #10 Cheryl Ann, #17 Rose, #24 Pam Sparks, #36 Jackie C, #37 Lola, #33 Tip Top and #44 Marianne.  We did pick a few more than we usually do and we want to let everyone who joined in on our challenge that we love each and every one and wish they all could be winners and hope you'll join us again for another challenge!

Welcome to Cards in Envy! This time our challenge theme is ANYTHING GOES WITH and A2 CARD! This means you can create ANY theme or color for your card BUT it MUST be an A2 CARD.   Please note that A2 cards are 4.25" x 5.5" in size NO SQUARE CARDS.  We hope you'll have fun with this challenge and that you will follow our challenge requirements which also requires cards that will FIT IN AN ENVELOPE for first class postage.

Since an Anything Goes challenge can bring  in lots of new entries, please be aware that entries that do not fit our TWO MAIN REQUIREMENTS will be deleted.  Please read those requirements in our guidelines or description above in the first paragraph.

Now on with our challenge!  Our design team has created some fabulous A2 cards to inspire you! Enjoy and be sure to visit their blogs to leave some comment love or comment with this post.  Thank you!
