Challenge #419 - White and Cream

Hey LIMettes!

WOW! You certainly loved those scribbles, drips and splats, didn't you? Thank you so much for joining in; it was lovely to see so many beautiful entries in our gallery. You all deserve a clap on the back for keeping those entries beautifully CAS. Well done!

Today it's time for a colour challenge and this time we've picked something that can look very elegant indeed.


This challenge doesn't have to be about only using die cuts.  A couple of the design team have also given some inspiration for the colourists out there and remember, there is always paper piecing too! As with all our colour challenges, it is okay to use some black as well.

Without further ado, and in alphabetical order, we're delighted and thrilled to announce that these are the talented people who will be giving you lots of inspiration going forwards:
