    Exclamation The 2017 Pantone card challenge - November

    Morning everyone!

    Here's the penultimate challenge for this year. Just one colour to focus on this month, and that's...


    Grenadine!


    It's a really festive shade of red, but you don't have to just think Christmas for this one. I've amassed plenty of inks and papers over the years that would work well with this colour so there's plenty of scope for themes.

    As always additional hints and tips are included in my monthly blog post - here's the one for November.

    The full instructions and details for this year's challenge can be found here in the January post.

    And past prompts will be listed under the tag 2017 Pantone card challenge on my blog.

    Also for those of you on Instagram, I'll be using the hashtag #2017pantonecardchallenge to share my projects there, so feel free to use this tag on Instagram as well!

    Enjoy!

    That is a very Christmassy red, so no excuses from me. I need to make some Christmas cards.

    You're not alone Susie - I have many still to make, trying to get 4 of the same design made at the same time to try and catch up but it's taking time!

    I just need time in the house to craft. We were out today and out tomorrow and out again Friday. Hubby thought retirement meant having more time, so why do we seem to have less!

    I have been cheating a little and using duplicate designs for birthdays and I have one to post but it will have to go into I Made This, because it certainly isn't red.

    I will post this one, but I'm not loving it.
    I was cutting out some snowflakes, and the off cut looked like
    a fancy parcel , to me. So I put ribbon and a bow on, and stuck it down....
    BUT.. IT DOESNT RESEMBLE a parcel at all now !!!!
    On the photo it looks like white spots, but it's just the light reflecting on
    the shinny card. I think it's destined for the bin.
    But it's the right colour

    Oh don't bin it Ellie. If you're that unhappy with the parcel bit just stick something over it. The background is just gorgeous and so is the sentiment and all the snowflakes, just tweak the centre if you're that unhappy. I also love your lace and that pretty bow. Get tweaking and don't waste all that hardwork. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

    Look how unhappy I was with my niece's card and everyone thought it was lovely, whilst I was ready to rip the bow off.

    I think we all for used to the fancy die 's that sometimes if it's not now we don't feel as creative when at one time crafting was creating everything from scratch with a simpler homemade look
