Hello and welcome again to another Cards in Envy Challenge! This time we want to be inspired--INSPIRED BY A SONG! That means that for the most part this is an anything goes challenge as long as it is an A2 card (4.25" x 5.5") and flat enough to fit in an envy AND was inspired by a song. It's up to you how you interpret and design your card from your song inspiration BUT we do ask that you share in your blog post the title of your song that inspired you. If you don't share the song title, your card will not be eligible for a badge win. Also, please make sure that you read the guidelines and rules for our challenge. We are still getting cards that do not fit our challenge. We put this in EACH challenge: NO SQUARE OR SHAPED CARDS. If you link one of those, your entry WILL be deleted with no comment. Also, if it is clear that your card is NOT A2 size, it will be deleted as well.
Now that we are done with a tad bit of "housekeeping" regarding our rules, we are ready to share the A2 cards created by our CIE Designers for your inspiration! Please click on each designer's blog link to read more details about their card creation and leave them some individual comment love! Underneath each card photo, we are sharing the title of the song that inspired the card creation.

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 8 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 may grab one of our fun badges for their blog! The badges for the challenge will be in the winners post following the close of the challenge after all the Designer votes are in. The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you were a winner.
