April is the month of new beginnings and flowers and birds coming alive again. So our April colors are Purple, Aqua and Tan inspired by this beautiful bird by Touched by a Butterfly. And again, don't worry about exact shades, but make the majority of your page these three colors. Use pastels for softness, neon for fun or deep primary colors for boldness - can't wait to see what you bring to us this month!




RULES:

1. Use all three colors - Purple, Aqua and Tan. You can use as many colors as you wish, just so these three are included and prominent. You can use any shade or tone.
2. Any size of layout, digi or paper, one or 2-pages are allowed.
3. Only one layout per person can be submitted for voting. Can be digi, cards or any size layout.
4. You MUST allow public embedding to be entered into the challenge.
5. You can only upload new layouts from April 1st until April 30, 2014 at 5pm GMT/9am PST (sb.com time).
Open to new entries anytime during the month.
6. Please link the products used on your layout - it's great to find out what lovely products you have used.
7. Only when the challenge has been closed, PM me the numbers of your favorite 3 layouts. The layout with the most votes, wins!
8. Do not vote for yourself as you will get a vote from me for pm-ing yours.
9. Try to leave comments on the layouts entered in the challenge ... everyone needs a little love.
10. Have fun!

Twist - Since our inspiration for the colors was a bird, the twist is to include a bird in your layout or in journaling. Just let me know how you are referencing a bird. I am counting eggs as a reference to birds - after all, no bird, no egg

Glad you are liking the colors. The bird is copyrighted, so you would have to purchase the kit to use it, but it would be pretty easy to make a similar one with pastels or paints. If you want to purchase the kit, just pm me. I think it's 3.49 but lots of matching elements.

But, any bird is all you need or even just a reference to a bird.

March is officially closed. Please pm me your votes.

Sharon, please post your layout and I would like to post in the introduction for additional inspiration as many have not worked with these colors before.
