Another Year Older Card Challenge!

Click >HERE< for the Flowers and Fantasy Badge Winners!

Well, the hours, days, months move by way too fast and before we know it--we're ANOTHER YEAR OLDER! So this time we are looking for Birthday Cards to celebrate the milestone of another year! Your birthday cards may be any size and any shape as long as they are flat enough to be mailed in an envelope.  That's how we got our name--Cards in ENVY!

As always, our Cards in Envy Designers have created some fabulous birthday cards to inspire and give you ideas.  For more details on each card creation, click on the blog link by each designer's name and while there, leave them some comment love!

We'd love to see your Another Year Older - BIRTHDAY card.  Please read over our challenge requirements and then share your card in the linky at the end of this post. 

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  • No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4") so your card would fit in an envy (envelope) for mailing
  • Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  • No Back Linking--cards must be posted to your blog or an 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.

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

Our Designers will be voting on the cards after the challenge ends and the winners will be announced by Wednesday morning  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 considered the best overall card for the theme.  The Designers will also pick one card as their personal favorite for an IN THE MAILBOX badge. 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 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 are a winner. 

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE.  Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted without notice or comment. We accept any size/shape of card BUT all cards must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing (no thicker than 1/4") which means no lumpy, bumpy embellishments. Challenge ends Sunday, May 1,  2016 at 6:00 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time.
