Welcome back for another challenge at the 4 Crafty Chicks!  This week your hostess-with-the-mostest is *yours truly* and I've got my favorite kind of challenge for you... that's right - a color challenge!  I got the inspiration for this combo from the Madeline paper stack from Prima - so pretty! 

As always, if you don't have these *exact* colors, don't worry!!!  Just use whatever you have on hand that is close...we're not sticklers.  :)

For the whole month of October, we've got the lovely and talented Christy Dillman (Christy's Zaney Creations) joining us as our Guest Designer and take a look at what she created using these colors:

Winner's of Challenge #58 - Monochromatic

Good afternoon from 4 Crafty Chicks. We had another stellar week of entries. There were boxes, tags, picture frames, sympathy cards, Christmas cards, thinking of you, birthday and oh so much more. The colors that everyone chose were just awesome from pastels, brights to neutrals. Thank you so much to our 75 entrants, each and everyone of your creations rocked our Monochromatic challenge (you all made it look so easy). Thanks for giving us such a tough job of picking only three. Here they are:



Chris the colors you chose are rich and all of the details (ribbon, lace, pin, chain) on this card make a fabulous Monochromatic creation. The sentiment you used is stunning and boy does it make a person want to start singing Christmas carols.

Michele C


Michele your image is stunning and so is your coloring. Loved the close-ups you took of the rest of your card. The details are amazing (glitter). Fantastic layout and the colors you chose make one eye catching Monochromatic card.

Mary C


Mary your card is simply gorgeous. The blue hues you used remind me of snow and ice. It makes me think of a white Christmas (hence the sentiment). The different textures and all of the details on your card make it pop. Wonderful inspiration for our Monochromatic challenge.

Congratulations, ladies! Please grab your Golden Egg badge and display it proudly on your blog! We'd love it if you could link it back to our challenge too.

Thanks to all who participated in our Monochromatic Challenge. We will be back tomorrow with a brand new challenge...can you believe we are up to #59 already? Crazy... :) See you in the morning along with our Guest Designer Christy, what an exciting day!
