Hello and Welcome to Week Four at The Challenge! This week is our Masculine Inspiration Challenge and we have a Nautical theme for you! We hope you are inspired to play along!

Are you looking for last week's winner? Please CLICK HERE.

Each week we have a fun challenge for your to try!!! We do a different style of challenge each week! We like to mix things up and keep them fresh!

Here is the monthly rotation:
Week 1-Sketch
Week 2-Colours
Week 3-Photo Inspiration
Week 4-Masculine Photo Inspiration
Week 5-Wild Card (a surprise!)

For my card, I decided to get our a new Darice (NBUS) embossing folder and finally put it to good use. I also had some Project Life cards with a nautical theme I wanted to use. I matched it with a sentiment from Verve's Strong Anchor set. A simple card for today's challenge!

The design team have created some inspiration to get you in the crafting mood! Come and join us! Our weekly winner will be our next Guest Designer! So come and join the fun!
