Challenge #4

Welcome to RES-Q-Challenge #4! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Today's challenge is brought to you by
Pat (casep on SCS):

My challenge is about diamonds. You might know that the 4C’s of diamonds are cut, color, carat, and clarity. We are going to borrow 3 of these to get your mojo in motion.
The directions are very easy.
Choose a cut, a color, and a carat.
Then create a card based on the materials your choices indicate.
Make your choices and let the creativity begin!

1. Cut:

use a round shape on your card:

use an oval shape on your card:

use a heart shape on your card:

use a square shape on your card:

2. Color*

Use blue, yellow, green, white

Use purple, orchid, green & white

Use green, aqua, blue, white

Use pink, purple, green, white

* I left the colors generic because I don’t know whose papers or cardstock you might have. In other words use any pink, purple, green, blue, or yellow you have and/or any decorative paper that matches the color scheme.

3. Carat:
1 carat- Use ribbons or fibers

2 carats- Use brads or eyelets

3 carats- Use buttons, charms, or epoxy stickers

4 carats- Use bling, rhinestones, or glitter

By the way, when I was doing research for this challenge I found out that diamonds come in over 300 different colors. Who knew? To see all the natural colors of diamonds click here:

Remember, there are no time limits, vendor restrictions or other rules for the challenge. It's only for fun and inspiration.
