Challenge 41... Elegance...

It's probably safe to say that our 'Vellum Challenge' wasn't the most popular we've done this year ... but despite this, we were treated to some beautiful creations which have definitely inspired us and provided the incentive to get out our vellum more often.  

Our next challenge is one that will probably have you all reaching for your luxury products because our theme this week is 
 Elegance
What constitutes 'elegance' is down to personal choice, of course,  and we're really looking forward to seeing exactly what it means to you.  Is it the use of luxurious ribbon or exclusive papers? ... Is it lots of sparkle and bling? ... Is it simplicity and monchrome or lots of frills and flounces?
The DT examples show our ideas were completely different,  but hopefully, you'll agree that the results are beautiful and elegant.  Details of all our creations can be found by clicking the names below and visiting our personal blogs.



 The deadline for this challenge is

12 noon (UK time)
Thursday 28th October 2010

You are free to create whatever you like ... it doesn't have to be a card ... in fact, show us as many different Christmas projects as you want to share.
Just remember ... have fun and don't forget to leave us a direct link to your project in our comment box so we can come and admire your creativity.

Ann, Irene, Max
