Hello and welcome to another challenge at Cards in Envy!  This time we challenge you to use this sketch by one of our Designers, Denise Gray. Please create an A2 (4.25" x 5.5") card that fits in an envelope with no lumpy bumpy flowers, buttons or embellishments.  For more details about the cards we want for our challenges, please check out our Challenge Guidelines.

Our Designers have created some fabulous cards with this sketch to inspire you!

Andrea (Permission to Create) 

Now it's your turn to inspire us!  We are so happy when you share your fabulous card creations with us at Cards in Envy!  We wish EVERYONE could be a winner but part of the fun in a challenge is the competition AND the recognition!  Our challenge focuses on the recognition rather than prizes and that is why you see no sponsors or prizes for our challenges.  We now have two new challenge recognition badges for the winners of our challenges!  
  • FIRST CLASS!  There will be only ONE person bestowed this honor which represents the Designer's Top Pick for Best Over All Card.
  • IN THE MAILBOX!  There will be THREE or more  awarded this badge as the Designer's Favorites or Runners Up to the First Class Winner.
So....will you be First Class?  Or In The Mailbox?  We can't wait to find out!

One last thing, you may have noticed it looks a little bit different here at Cards in Envy--new header, new background, new challenge badge, new winner badges.  That's because Denise, one of our Co-Hosts, has had to step down as a challenge host (don't worry, she's still designing for us) and has handed the reins over to me.  I decided that along with the change over to a single host that I would also change the look of the blog.  I hope you like it and I look forward to leading you and my fabulous designers in some fun challenges.  Thank you for joining us here at Cards in Envy!


P.S. We're on Facebook! Come find us  at "Cards in Envy" and like our page!  We have challenge sneak peeks, weekly card quotes/sentiments and tips/discussions. Plus you can share your photos of cards you create that fit in and "Envy!"  We'd love to have you join us!
