Challenge #478

Hey LIMettes!

We're back with our latest challenge which is a Theme challenge.


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

This will be our last challenge of the year. The Design Team will be taking a break and we will resume again in March 2023.

We are looking for more designers to join our team in the New Year! If you wish to be considered for such a position, please add (DT) after your name on your submissions to this challenge.

Those wishing to apply should:
  • be comfortable with the CAS genre
  • have a personal blog
  • produce a sample card for each challenge (one card every two weeks)
  • comment on a proportion of the submissions to every challenge
  • add additional card(s) as inspiration for some of the challenges to their personal blogs
  • be able to take good, clear, square pictures of their cards
  • ideally have the ability to share their makes on Instagram and FaceBook
  • have a way for us to contact them, either via a contact widget on their blog or in their profile.
  • The design team call will run for this challenge only
**********************************************************
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!







**********************************************************
To be eligible for showCASe choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages. 

Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.
New work only please.

As always you share your beautiful creations with us and make selecting just 3 from each challenge very difficult. Thank you all for joining in with us week after week and we look forward to seeing you in future challenges.

Showcase and winner challenge # 471 & #472

 Hey LIMettes,

Once again I have to say how sorry I am for the lateness of this post. Life sometimes puts obstacles in our way and stops us in our tracks for a while. I'm back now so we'll crack on and showcase our choices for challenges #471 & #472.

Once again you inspire us with your creations and it doesn't make it easy to choose just 3 from all the fabulous entries
