Pink & Gray Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for our Snowbirds Badge Winners!

Hello, hello!  It's time for a new card challenge here at Cards in Envy and this time we have a color challenge for you!  PINK & GRAY!  We want to see your fabulous cards created with the primary colors of Pink & Gray.  It's okay to have a bit of other colors like white background or green for leaves but please make your card(s) mostly Pink & Gray.  And as always your card may be any size and any shape as long as it is flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing!

Again, to inspire you, our designers created a fabulous assortment of Pink & Gray cards! Please click on each designers' blog name for more details about their card creation and while there we'd love for you to leave some comment love. One more little bit of news--our designer Sybrina will be leaving us after the end of this challenge. She needs some time off to do other things and be with her famiily. But we're hoping she'll be able to join us again as a designer and to play along with our challenges until then. We so love Sybrina's card talents and appreciate all the time she has dedicated to our challenge. We will definitely miss her but we do have a new designer that we're sure you will love and will be introducing her in our next challenge.

We'd love to see your  Pink & Gray cards. 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.
  • Cards Only--NO TAGS

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--NO TAGS.  Entries not following our rules and not for the current challenge theme 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, February 5, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Central  Time. 

Leave a comment and link your "Pink & Gray" card in the linky below. Thank you for sharing your card that is flat enough to mail in an envelope with us at Cards in Envy!  

Please use your FIRST name and LAST INITIAL for your inlinkz entry name.


  1. Awwww, Sandy, thanks so much for these kind words. I certainly am going to miss being a regular here at CIE but hope to play along with your fun challenges. Thanks to you and the amazing CIE gals for the chance to be a part of such a wonderful group of card makers. :)
