"I got spirit! Yes, I do!..I got spirit, how bout you?!"
~ Ghetto Super Star, BC, Canada
It looks like most of the kids have gone back to school by now, so we here at Cards in Envy want to show our school spirit by creating cards that use "SCHOOL COLORS." What is your favorite school's colors? Red and White? Blue and White? Black and Gold? This is a color challenge and you chose the colors! Create an A2 (4.5" x 5.5") card that is flat enough to fit in an envy using at least TWO school colors. Now you don't have to make a school card (though you can) but we do ask that you share in your post what your school colors are. You can even share the name of your school if you like.
And now, here are the Cards in Envy Designers showing their school spirit and their favorite school colors. Feel free to visit their blogs for more details about their cards and leave them a comment. We hope our cards inspire you and give you lots of ideas.

WE HAVE A NEW WAY OF PICKING OUR BADGE WINNERS!!
Our Designers will be voting on their favorite cards which will be announced on our blog the Tuesday or Wednesday following the close of the challenge.. We will have one FIRST CLASS which is the card that receives the most votes from the Designers and each Designer will pick one card as their favorite for IN THE MAILBOX. That means we may have up to 10 In the Mailbox cards for a challenge. We decided to go with this fun method as each Designer has their own unique style and preference. Each chosen will receive one of our fun badges for their blog! The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you were a winner.
