March Challenge!

Hi everyone! It's officially the first day of autumn here in Australia, but judging by the current weather here in Queensland, I think that summer will still be here for a little while yet! ;)

Besides the first day of autumn it's also new challenge day! And we have a fabulous one for you this month. Design team member Chloe Nielsen has kindly created a sketch for us to work with and it looks like this...

In addition to the sketch, you are also required to include at least one handmade embellishment on your creation. (Our design team always provide plenty of inspiration about different handmade embellishments you can include - these can be homemade or purchased.)

You are welcome to create any project you wish for this challenge layout / card / art journal spread / canvas / pocket page spread - as long we can see how you used the sketch and included a handmade embellishment. Please note that entries must be created solely for our challenge - we do not permit combined challenge entries.

Our fabulous sponsor this month is none other than challenge designer Chloe's own business - Rainbow Splendour and there is a gorgeous package of RBS goodies up for grabs for our winner!

Rainbow Splendour has always been a fantastic supporter of the SUYS challenge, so please show your support in return by ensuring you are a fan of Rainbow Splendour on the Facebook page HERE and you are following the Rainbow Splendour blog HERE
You can also join the Rainbow Splendour Inspiration group on Facebook HERE where you can share your own projects and chat with other members.

Now onto some inspiration from our design team...
