May 2023

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

This month we celebrate....


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

This month we challenge you to use the color blue.  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 blue is not to your liking, join us with a rainbow-inspired craft instead.

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.

We would like to welcome our guest designer this month,
