Team Challenge: Bold, Bright and Beautiful Beginning

We started the new year with a new challenge featuring bold, bright and beautiful beginnings in this fun treasury.

We had many entries of bold and bright colors some also indicating a beginning such as YarnBirdy's first craft sale item, AKandKO's first knitted beanie on her new knitting machine, wedding and baby items.

All were beautiful!

The most appreciated and nominated as the best item was Jackie's gorgeous hand beaded and embroidered fibre art card.
Poppy Field Card

You can find more beautiful art cards at Jackie's shop, StitchMikki where she sells fabric art cards, fabric landscapes, ACEOs and digital collage sheets along with Emily's anime cards.  

Visit her Etsy about page.  

Thanks Team and everyone who commented, promoted, voted and supported our challenge.
