Sketch and Color Challenge #30

Looking for a crafting challenge?

Want a chance to win a YNS Prize?

Then join us for Your Next Stamp’s bi-weekly challenge!

Challenge #30 starts today with a new sketch and color combo for you to choose from.  Pick the one that inspires you, unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the two!  Plus, the best part is you might win a gift certificate to the YNS store by playing along.

Challenge #30 is open through Thursday, January 21st at midnight EST.  One random participant will win a $15.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store, plus if the winner uses YNS products on their creation they will receive an additional $5.00 on their gift certificate.  We also select our favorite creation featuring YNS products from all participants and announce a “Top Pick”.   The random winner and “Top Pick” will be announced on the YNS blog the Sunday following the challenge close.   Link up a picture of your creation from your blog, gallery, etc. at the bottom of this post and you will be entered to win.

Are you ready to see which one will inspire you?

    Deleted my creations that did not follow the rule of at least 3 colors + neutrals that i was told to me via email that would not be valid for prize. What confuses me is that the Penguin card has yellow and the Guest Design card has many other colors that are not neutrals.
