April 2023

 Hello all!  Welcome back to another month at the Colorful Options Challenge

This month we celebrate....


Thank you for joining us for the Green Challenge, and we hope you will all join us again this month too.

This month we challenge you to use pastel colors.  Please remember that you
may incorporate any neutrals or metallics that you need in your design and that your design does not need to be monochromatic.  If pastels are not to your liking, join us with a rainbow-inspired craft instead.

Any PASTEL color is welcome.  Your entry does NOT need to be monochromatic.  The predominant color should be a pastel color.  If pastels differ from your fancy, feel free to enter a traditional rainbow-colored card/craft instead.  (see the rules on the sidebar)

 Examples from our Design Team incorporate various artistic styles, and we welcome you to do the same!  Do not forget to click on the person’s blog to see all the details of how we made these creations and leave these wonderful girls some comment love.

Keep in mind that our contest is not limited to paper crafts.  Paint? Ink? Decor? Drawing? ANY artistic endeavor is welcome!!  

If you are a junior maker younger than 18, please post your age behind your name. Thank you!!

Show us your take on the challenge!
