We chose Meghan’s gorgeous card created with our Petal Cut Peony dies. Her creative use of color with our floral dies embodies summer in a beautiful color palette.

Erica’s bright blue Sunflower Bouquet card was not only beautifully watercolored but was also a unique take on our Summer themed challenge last month.

Gwendolyn’s watercolored Fresh Cut Sunflower Outline card was so artful. Her no line coloring and abstract background was a great seasonal card for our Summer themed challenge.

All of the entries from our Summer Themed Challenge were so unique and beautiful and we’d like to thank everyone who participated in last month’s Challenge!

For this month’s new challenge, we have a fun and seasonal Mood Board Challenge!

Create any type of paper crafting project inspired by our Mood Board. You may be inspired by images in the photos or by some of the colors you see in the images on the board. We leave it up to you in regards to what you choose to take away from this board. We cannot wait to see how you interpret our Mood Board for this month’s challenge! Scroll down to see some inspiration by our Guest Designer and design team members and how they have interpreted this month’s Challenge.
