December 2023

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

This month's challenge is inspired by Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer, the Rankin and Bass film from 1964.  Who can forget Sam the Snowman singing.......

Silver and Gold

This month we challenge you to use the colors silver and gold.  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 silver and gold are not to your liking, join us with a rainbow-inspired craft.

Examples from our Design Team incorporate a range of artistic styles, and we welcome you to do the same! 

Do not forget to click on the person’s blog to see all of 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!  

And now, our design team makes......
