  1. This week we are inspired by the colours in this "sweet" photo! You could be inspired by the shapes, the textures or even the theme! The skies the limit, as long as you are able to explain how you were inspired.
  2. The team is divided into the different styles and each designer explains how they were inspired by the challenge! 
  3. So come and join us and try your hand at a brand new "style" of card making or work in your comfort zone, it is totally up to you!

The styles are explained HERE.

I was inspired by the star shaped cookies on the tray.

Silent night neutrals, the name and the soft colors inspired me to create a serene Nativity scene.
