It's time for another card challenge here on CARDS IN ENVY! This time we want to be "TICKLED PINK!" Of course, that means we want to see cards that are mostly pink or have a pink focal point. In our last challenge to honor our co-founder, Denise Gray, we lifted the size limitation for cards and have now decided to continue with the any size or any shape card for our challenges. BUT we still require that all cards entered into our challenge be FLAT (no thicker than 1/4") so they would easily fit into an envy (envelope) for mailing! That's where we get our blog and challenge name: "Cards in Envy!" If you are perfectly happy making A2 (4.25" x 5.5") cards for our challenge you may continue to do so, in fact they are our favorite size for cards! But if now and then you need or want to make a bigger card or a shaped card, you can share it here as long as it is flat. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment and we'll get back to you with an answer as soon as we can.
And now, some inspiration from our Cards in Envy Designers! If you like what you see and want more details about each card, please click on the blog name by each designer's name to visit their personal blog and leave some comment love to let them know you stopped by.

We'd love to see your "Tickled Pink" card (must be mostly pink or have a pink focal point). 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.
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. Entries not following our rules and guidelines will be deleted without notice or comment. We now 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, March 6, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. Central Time.
