Well hello again crafty card makers! We've got a fun challenge for you this time around...it's JUST US GIRLS! Yep, all we want to see are girly, feminine cards. They can be for any occasion but must definitely be for girls or ladies. Your card can be any size and any shape but MUST be flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing.
We also want to welcome all the new challenge participants that joined us last challenge and hope you'll continue to play along with us here at Cards in Envy!
Our designers have once again created some fun, fabulous cards for you to enjoy and for a bit of inspiration as you create your own cards for the challenge. Please click on the blog link by their name for more details about their card creation and leave them some comment love on their blog post.

We'd love to see your Just us GIRLS card. 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 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, May 15, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. Central Daylight Savings Time.
