Pretty Pastels Card Challenge

Click >HERE< for the badge winners for the Fantasy & Flowers Card Challenge

Hello again, we here at Cards in Envy hope that you had a wonderful and blessed Easter.  It's time for a new card challenge and we are doing another color challenge for PRETTY PASTELS.  That means any color as long as it is a pastel like pinks, blues, greens, purples etc. in softer colors.  Your card can be any occasion, any size and any shape but must be flat enough to fit an envelope for mailing.  

Our designers have created some wonderful Pretty Pastel cards for you to give you an idea of what we are looking for.  Please click on their blog name by each of their names for more details about each card and while visiting, leave them some comment love!

We'd love to see your  Pretty Pastels 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, April 30th, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time.
