Challenge One - Pink, Green, Brown


Welcome to our very first challenge here at Colour Create. I hope as many of you as possible can join us this week and that you'll have lots of fun!

To celebrate our launch we will be giving away some lovely candy to one lucky participant. To be in with a chance of winning these goodies you must make a card following the rules of the challenge and leave us a comment with a link to your card. The winner will be picked at random and revealed next Sunday morning when we announce Challenge Two.

We will also be inviting one person to join us each week as a Guest Designer. If you would like to be considered for this you must indicate when you leave your comment by putting the letters GD at the end. As nobody has been picked for the guest spot for week one, I have asked my daughter Georgia to take on the role. You can see her card below, along with all the other beautiful Design Team creations.

Okay, here is your colour combination for this week:

Please make your card using, pink, green and brown. You can also use cream/white for your cardstock and flesh colours for any images.

There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'butterflies'.

Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!

Here are the Design Team cards.........
