ANNOUNCEMENT: After 6 years of hosting card challenges, our last challenge will be February 4, 2019. It is a special challenge following our very first challenge on February 4, 2013. We will be making cards using Sketch #1 by Denise Gray, the original creator of Cards in Envy. For this last challenge you will have two weeks to create a card following the sketch and share it here in the challenge post with a link to your blog post via Inlinkz. There will be no individual badges awarded for this challenge, rather, we will provide a FIRST CLASS FINAL CHALLENGE Badge for EVERYONE who participates in this last challenge. Thank you so much for 6 wonderful card crafting years! We hope you'll join us for this challenge. ~ Sandy & the CIE Designers
