Happy Friday! If you are making christmas cards or any type of paper crafting project then we have a challenge for you! It’s just the thing to jump start your creativity and wouldn’t you love a chance to win a YNS Store gift certificate???!!! There is a sketch and color combo to choose from, unless you really want to challenge yourself and combine the two!
Challenge #53 is open through Thursday, December 8, 2016 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.
PLUS…if you are using YNS products on your creation why don’t you take the YNS Social Media challenge too?! You don’t need to create a different project, simply add your Challenge #53 entries to IG, SCS or FB. Check out all the details in the rules at the bottom.
If you use the sketch feel free to swap out shapes or rotate; so long as we can see the basic sketch was your inspiration.
If you choose the color combo, be sure to use at least 3 colors and feel free to add in neutrals.
Joan, December Guest Designer
