Memory Box Challenge #87- Color Challenge: Yellow Cards

Challenge icons

Greetings friends. Thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge last month. We loved seeing all of your water-themed cards.

The winner of the blog badge as well as the random draw winner from July's challenge was Cathy R from Cathy's Card Spot. We loved the elegance of her under the sea card:


Please contact me at [email protected] with your full name and US address to claim your prize.

Want to play along in this month's challenge?  The rules are simple - just create a project following the theme, use at least one Memory Box stamp or die on your project and link your entry to this blog post.  You can make a card, a scrapbook page, a home decor item, etc..  To encourage participants with various levels of stamping experience, one entry will be selected at random to win a prize. Enter as many times as you want, but your name will only be entered once into the random prize drawing.   In addition, the design team will select their favorite entry to  be highlighted on the Outside the Box blog and that designer will receive our winner badge to proudly display on their blog. 

You don't have to have a blog in order to participate.   You can upload your project to any online gallery and link it to this post.   In fairness to other players, we reserve the right to remove entries that do not use at least one Memory Box product.  You are also welcome to link your design to other challenges.  Feel free to grab our badge to post on your blog post or side bar.

Please note, because of issues with shipping internationally, only domestic entries will be eligible to be shipped prizes. We are so very sorry that we had to add this stipulation.


August is a hot month for a lot of us, so as an inspiration, we are going to do celebrate the warm color yellow. You can create a completely monochromatic card or add other colors as well so long as yellow is heavily featured. We love to see how people interpret a color challenge whether they use papers, inks, pencils or markers. You can do whatever you want! We just ask that you highlight the color yellow on your card and that you use at least one Memory Box product.

Here are some samples to help inspire you:
