Color Combo Challenge & The April Lucky Link-Up Winner!

Good morning, crafty friends! As I do every Monday, I'd like to share with you the card I made for this week's challenge here at Made Especially For You. Since it's the fifth Monday of the month which doesn't happen too often, this week's challenge is a bit different than the rest. For this week's challenge, you are to create a card inspired by the provided color combo:

The colors do not have to be exact, but please try and match the shades as closely as possible

Color combo challenges are one of my favorites, so I was super excited to make a card for this challenge. It ended up being a bit tougher than I thought since I didn't have any patterned papers with these colors, but here's what I came up with: 

I am so embarrassed of this picture. I could not, FOR THE LIFE OF ME, get the colors to look the way they actually do. The brown looks black, the yellow almost looks white, and luckily the blues and green are about accurate. I tried a couple different cameras and still couldn't get an accurate representation of the colors. :(

Visit the 'Weekly Challenge' page to enter this week's color combo challenge. The randomly chosen winner will receive a $10 voucher to Di's Digi Downloads and be offered a one-week guest designer position. Don't forget that all entries are also eligible to win a top three spot and badge! 

And as promised, we have a winner for April's Lucky Link-Up. One lucky winner will receive the Wild Card Cricut cartridge. Let's see who that winner is...

Congratulations, Katie! You've won the Wild Carl Cricut cartridge. I've sent you an email so you can claim your cartridge. I'll need to hear back from you within one week, otherwise another winner will be chosen. Thanks so much for participating in our challenges! :)
Have a lovely week! :)
