Challenge Title: The Colors of October
Date: Saturday, October 12th, 2013
Hello and welcome to the 4th annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge and card drive - we are thrilled to have you here with us.
Being an October baby I'm very familiar with the October birthstones which are: Opal, Tourmaline, & Pink sapphire
The October flowers are: Calendulas and Cosmos.
See the pictures below for some October goodness
October is also the month of Hope, just one more reason why this challenge is perfect for this month!
Challenge translation: In honor of October make a card featuring pink, green, & yellow with a touch of something shimmery or opal looking. You may use any shade of pink, green, & yellow that you wish, pastels, earthy tones, or bright tones. Keep the theme of the card upbeat and happy!
I can't wait to see what you do with this color combo!
Thank you again for joining us, and see the details below for sending in your cards.

Hi, Patty. I slept in today so finally getting to link my card here for you. I'll be checking out the gallery shortly. This is a great challenge with some lovely colors plus that touch of bling. Sure to make for a gorgeous collection of cards for our patients.
Great challenge, thanks! I used SU's Girlfriends as my starting point, and added a dc frame, some dc butterflies, and a layered flower with pearlescent string and a pearl center. Here's You've Got A Friend
