Challenge #474 - Friendship

Hey LIMettes!

We're back with our latest challenge which is a theme challenge. This fortnight we will be celebrating World Cardmaking Day which is celebrated on the 1st October. 


Our theme for World Cardmaking Day is Friendship!
Just a quick note before we get started - if you have tried to contact us regarding a Guest Design spot, there has been a delay with replying due to ill health. We will start up again with Guest Designers in 2023 (hopefully!!).

**********************************************************
Unfortunately, we are seeing more cards in our gallery that are NOT Clean and Simple. We do ask that you check our guidelines for our challenge but here is a reminder -

Less is More is a Clean and Simple challenge, but what does clean and simple (CAS) mean and what are we looking for in your cards?
One main focal point
Lots of clean / open / non-patterned / non-textured space (often called 'white space' although not necessarily white) Space with NO PATTERN and NO TEXTURE on it
Minimal or NO layers
Minimal embellishments
Quick and easy to recreate
Cards that comply with our Glossary of Terms

**********************************************************

Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!

(coming soon)
