New Challenge for April + Lots of Winners!


Our challenge for April is to use a die-cut shape or element your card… you can have it as your focal point, as an afterthought, or however you choose!

You can interpret this challenge any way you like. There is no right or wrong, and you may use any images, themes, or Spectrum Noir products you choose! Keep reading for details on how to enter.
