The Colors of Fall Challenge!

The Badge Winners for the Inspired by a Song Challenge are listed >HERE<

Hello Everyone! We have a new challenge and in celebration of Autumn arriving (officially on the calendar) this week, our challenge celebrates that season with THE COLORS OF FALL.  Now your card does not have to be an autumn or fall card but it certainly needs to have the COLORS of Fall such as Browns, Golds, Oranges, Dark Green, Reds etc.  Remember, as always, your card MUST be an A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") AND flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.  No Shaped Cards (unless you provide the measurements) and NO SQUARE CARDS.

For your Fall inspiration, here are the cards by our Cards in Envy Designers!  Please click on each Designers blog link and visit their blog for more details about their card and leave some comment love so they will know you visited.










 Kathy, The Crafty Nurse

















  Patricia, Thinking of Inking  





Sandy (Challenge Host), Sandy's Crafty Creations 





Sherry, Bits of Cheer














Now it's time for you to create a COLORS OF FALL card and share it with us in the linky below. Make sure it is an A2 card (4.25" x 5.5")  flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.  

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No square or shaped cards(shaped cards allowed IF you list the size of your card--height and width). All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • No Back Linking.  Cards must be posted to your blog or online album during the challenge dates.  If it was posted online BEFORE the beginning of our challenge, it cannot be linked.
  • Entry must be for the current theme:  COLORS OF FALL

Additional rules can be found under the Challenge Guidelines tab at the top under our blog header.

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. 

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE.  Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted without notice or comment. REMEMBER!  NO SQUARE or SHAPED CARDS unless you provide the measurements of your shaped card.   Challenge ends Sunday, October 4, 2015   at 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time.
