Wings Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for our It's a Heat Wave Badge Winners!

Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge here at  Cards in Envy!  Our theme will be WINGS!  Yep, we are looking for cards that feature anything with wings....angels, fairies, butterflies, bugs, insects, airplanes etc.  So put your creative thinking cap on and show us your Wings--on cards of course.  All entries must be for CARDS only and your card must be FLAT enough to go in an envy for mailing.  It can be any size or any shape.

Our designers have once again come up with some wonderful cards for your inspiration.  Please click on the link by each designer's name for more details about their card and while on their blog, leave them some comment love so they know you stopped by.  We'd also like for you to welcome a returning designer to our team--Kristie Marcotte! 

 Kathy, The Crafty Nurse

Sandy (Challenge Host), Sandy's Crafty Creations 

Sherry, Bits of Cheer

We'd love to see your cards with Wings!  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, August 14,  2016 at 6:00 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time.
