Enchantment Abounds!

Enchantment!  What a delightful theme.  I am thinking about the Enchanted Kingdom or the Enchanted Forest. What about how enchanting your favorite girl looks in her princess costume, formal dress or maybe wedding dress?  Card creations could feature castles, unicorns, stars or hearts.  Or a beautiful winter card as two of our design team members created.  And last, but not least, how about creating something beautiful from the lovely Enchantment palette from Close to My Heart?

Need inspiration?  No problem...the Design Team has created beautiful projects to get your creative mojo going!

 Be sure to check back weekly for even more challenges!
