Design Team Call and Challenge #343 - Colours

We are looking for some new members
to add to our Design Team!

Our blog is dedicated to creating greeting cards in the Clean and Simple style of crafting, alternating between colour challenges and sketch challenges. Design Team responsibilities include designing cards for our challenges and sharing them on your own blog, commenting on challenge entries and voting for our Weekly Winners each week, and acting as our host and creating challenge ideas for a minimum of one month during the year.

If you would like to be considered for a position on our team, you must participate in this week's colour challenge and next week's sketch challenge so that we can see your work in both types of challenges. Please add the letters "DT" after your name when you link your cards for the two challenges, and make sure that your cards follow our Challenge Rules. Applicants will be contacted during the month of November.  Our new members will join us as our Guest Designers in December and start on the team full-time in January 2020.


Hello there!  It's Patricia here as this week's challenge host, and I've chosen some bright colours for our challenge:


For our colour challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colours. You may also use neutral colours; however, the challenge colours should be prominently featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up colour names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colours as closely as possible.

Here is some inspiration from our design team:
