Good Evening Everyone and welcome to my CANDY challenge!  It's been a long time since I posted any CANDY and I wanted to make this a good one.  I've got two prizes for two winners.  The first will be hand selected by me and the second will be selected by RANDOM.org.  Here's what you can win:

These Ranger Distress Inks are the 13 colors that I use most often.  They include the following colors:  Barn Door, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, Dusty Concord, Walnut Stain, Weathered Wood, Bundled Sage, Victorian Velvet, Scattered Straw, and Antique Linen

There are six 6x6 paper pads in this group: BasicGrey - Max & Whiskers, Kioshi, Cappella; and PinkPaislee - Queen Bee, 365 Degrees, Bayberry Cottage.  There are four Magnolia stamps: Happiness Be Yours, Tilda with Violin, Tilda with Sunflower (unmounted), and Blades of Grass (unmounted).  There is also a pack of BasicGrey buttons.

Now for the challenge...You need to make an easel card and you must use the colors brown and red.  Brown is my favorite color and I just love when it is paired with shades of red.  You can add any other color(s) that you like and you may use any shade of brown or red.  You get to pick the theme for your card and any embellies that you like.  I will mention, however, that I am partial to the holidays :-)

USE WHATEVER IMAGE YOU LIKE!  Magnolia's are obviously my favorite, but it won't help you win.  I want to see what YOU like.  Be creative...Be imaginative...and most of all - HAVE FUN!  The more fun you have, the more awesome your card will be :-)

I will personally hand pick the first winner, who will get to choose which prize she/he would like.  The second winner will be selected by RANDOM.org and she/he will receive the remaining prize.  Each winner will be required to send me their winning easel card for my personal collection.

If you're interested in joining in on the fun, you will have 30 days to complete your card.  The challenge will begin on July 17, 2010 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Standard Time and will end on August 16, 2010 at 12:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.  Please add a link to your card using the Linky below, adding your name to the title of the thumbnail AND MAKE SURE THE LINK POINTS TO THE ACTUAL POST ON YOUR BLOG.  To make sure that I can contact you if you win, leave a comment on this post only with your name and email address.  The only other requirement is that you place a link to this CANDY challenge on the sidebar of your blog (provided you have a blog).

Best of luck to you should you decide to join in.  Absolutely anyone is welcome to enter a card, regardless of skill level.  Don't be shy!  You can enter as often as you like.  I can't wait to see what you make!
