Hello, hello! Welcome back to another fun Cards in Envy Card Challenge! Since it's October, there are those who think about things that go bump in the night and Halloween but we also realize there are those who do not celebrate that holiday. So, to make it fair for all, our card challenge this time around is a color challenge--PURPLE & GREEN! That's right, we want to see your cards that feature lots of purple & lots of green together. You can add in other colors, but please make sure that we can really see the purple & green. Of course, those colors do lend well to Halloween cards so if that's what you want to create, go for it and if you don't--go with some other occasion! Just remember, your card must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing. It can be any size and any shape as long as it does not have lumpy bumpy embellishments.
Our Cards in Envy Designers have created some awesome purple & green cards for you to get you going with this challenge. Please visit their blogs by clicking on the blog name by their name for more details about their cards and leave them some comment love so they'll know you stopped by!

We'd love to see your Purple & Green cards. Please read over our challenge requirements and then share your card in the linky at the end of this post.
Here are a few reminders about our challenge requirements:
- No lumpy, bumpy cards. Elements on your card need to be relatively flat (no thicker than 1/4") so your card would fit in an envy (envelope) for mailing
- Limit entries to 3 per challenge.
- No Back Linking--cards must be posted to your blog or an online album during the challenge dates. If it was posted online BEFORE the beginning of our challenge, it cannot be linked.
- Entry must be for the current theme.
- Cards Only--NO TAGS
Our Designers will be voting on the cards after the challenge ends and the winners will be announced by Wednesday morning following the close of the challenge.. We will have one FIRST CLASS which is the card that receives the most votes from the Designers and considered the best overall card for the theme. The Designers will also pick one card as their personal favorite for an IN THE MAILBOX badge. That means we may have up to 10 In the Mailbox cards for a challenge. We decided to go with this fun method as each Designer has their own unique style and preference. Each chosen may grab one of our fun badges for their blog! The badges for the challenge will be in the winners post following the close of the challenge after all the Designer votes are in. The winners will also be announced on our Facebook Page, so come Like us so you'll know quickly if you are a winner.
THIS IS A CARDS ONLY CHALLENGE--NO TAGS. Entries not following our rules and not for the current challenge theme will be deleted without notice or comment. We accept any size/shape of card BUT all cards must be flat enough to fit in an envy for mailing (no thicker than 1/4") which means no lumpy, bumpy embellishments. Challenge ends Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. Central Time.
