Are you up to the challenge?

My apologies for the late start today - time just got away from me!

We have a great challenge for you this week but first off, I want to add in a photo of the prize package that Heather is offering this month - take a look:


It includes the Pair a Phrase stamp set, the new milepost shapes and blue & green sparkles. In addition there is also the prize package from Kelly Jo up for grabs so keep playing along with the September challenges and two winners will be drawn at the end of the month!

Now for this week's challenge - we want to see what you can do with cardstock only - no patterned paper! In addition, we want you to use at least 3 different colors of cardstock! Oh yeah, time to put your thinking caps on! Let's see what the DT came up with:







Beautiful work ladies! So what do you say - think you can meet the challenge?

Remember - NO patterned paper and at least 3 colors of cardstock. Ready? You know you are! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Lovely Challenge.......
Sorry about not being able to use any CTMH products. I live in India & do not have access to much craft supplies. Will try & get some CTMH goodies soon.

It's totally fine with me if my Card is not elligible for the challenge. I had fun making it.

Hugs,
Riti

I, too, often use just cardstock and stamps since I embrace the CAS style. Thanks again for a fun challenge.
