We're so pleased you gave it a try and you made some really beautiful items.

Challenge 25 - Blue, Sand, Silver and Black

You weren't a bit put off by the unusual colour combination of the last challenge were you? Your projects were incredible once again and we do thank you all for entering during this holiday period. It is nice to see so many regular people amongst the blogs we visited.

So, who wants the prize of the beautiful set of ribbons from Crafty Ribbons? Don't all shout at once. There can only be one winner and the random generator picked out:

Sam By The Sea

Congratulations Sam! Please could you e-mail us at ColourCreateChallenge@gmx.co.uk to claim your prize.

This week we have another new colour combination, prizes for 5 people (yes, that is 5 separate prizes!), and another new member of the design team.

Firstly, let's introduce you to Deanne, the newest member on the design team. Deanne has a wonderful clean style of card making. She will be be a breath of fresh air to everyone and such an inspiration because she only uses stamped images under duress. I think it takes real talent to make the kinds of cards she does and what a clever lady she is. Please visit her blog because you will not be disappointed; her projects are beautiful. Welcome to the team Deanne.

Next our sponsor for this challenge is:

And we have been given 5 sets of vouchers to give away to people for 10% off anything ordered in their store.

Handy hippo have almost everything crafty in their online store from stamping supplies to wedding stationary, embellishments, paper and card to jewellery making. New in the store at the moment is 12" x 12" textured card in 75 different colours, Penny Black Stamps, Peel-off ribbons, Buttons, Dufex stickers and Laura Ashley products. You will really be spoilt for choice.


Still with us? Okay, here is the picture for your challenge inspiration

The colours are Blue, Sand, Silver and Black.
Our optional extra , if you'd like to play along with that, is Summertime. But please remember that it is optional.

Here is some inspiration from our very talented design team starting off with our newest member.
