Challenge #247 - Double

It's Emily here again with my last challenge for the month! Somehow October has just flown past and Christmas is fast approaching! Is anyone else beginning to panic like I am?!

As this is the fifth Tuesday in October I have an extra special challenge today to use a previous CC&S sketch and some retired Stampin' Up colours. I look forward to seeing all your ideas for this challenge and thank everyone that has played along this month. I hope you have enjoyed my challenge ideas. I have certainly loved seeing all the wonderful cards in the gallery!


We've used Stampin' Up colour names for reference; however, you may use any companies' products for your cards as long as you match our colours as closely as possible. You may also use neutral colours (white, cream, kraft, brown, grey, or black) for card layers, sentiments, and image outlines. However, in order to be considered for our weekly winners, you must not use any other colours.

Feel free to flip or rotate the sketch when creating your card.  You may also stretch the square format of the sketch out to a rectangle.

Here is some inspiration from the design team to jump start your creativity:




We give our Guest Designers a break on Timeless Tuesday weeks.  Be sure to come back next Tuesday to find out who our Guest Designer for November will be!

Our challenge requirements are listed in the Challenge Rules tab. Please read them carefully before linking your card. Happy crafting!


Challenge End Time: 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time/11:00 p.m. London U.K. time Monday, November 6, 2017
