Hello and welcome to another challenge here at Cards in Envy!  It's that time of year when we think of Spring colors, flowers and Easter!  So for this challenge our theme is SPRING IS IN THE AIR! We are looking for cards that depict SPRING!  Spring colors, Spring flowers or Easter designs.  Your cards must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") and flat enough to fit in an envy for our challenge.

Our designers are celebrating Spring with these fabulous cards to inspire you! Please click on each designers blog link to read more about their card creations and leave them some comment love.

Now it's your turn to share your Spring is in the Air card!   Make sure it is an A2 card flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing.

Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
  1. No square cards.  All cards entered must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5")
  2. No lumpy, bumpy cards.  Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4")
  3. Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
  4. 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.
  5. Entry must be for the current theme: SPRING is in the Air!
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 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 were a winner.  

THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE.  Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted without notice or comment.  PLEASE NOTE:  NO SQUARE CARDS   Challenge ends Sunday,  April 5, 2015  at 6 p.m. Central Time.
