Winter Hues

Hi! Suzz here. Welcome back to Week Two of our latest challenge here at Frilly and Funkie. The weather this time of year in the Midwest gets to be a bit chilly, icy, snowy and overcast. These elements of the season create a beautiful palette of colors which I am calling Winter Hues. This challenge requires you use any or all of the following colors: blue, white, silver, gray in your vintage or shabby chic project.

The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

The guidelines for entering are simple; create a new vintage or shabby chic project following the challenge theme, link it below to your post (not just your blog) and also include a link back to this challenge in your post. You can combine our challenge with up to 10 challenges (including this one) to be in with a chance of winning. If you are entering through a public forum (such as Instagram) you'll need to include the words Frilly and Funkie Challenge. Also, please be sure to turn off your Word Verification so our Design Team can leave comments on your blogs. Make sure you follow these rules as unfortunately we have had to eliminate entrants from the prize draws in the past.

Here is some amazing inspiration from the Funkie side of the Design Team;

Feeling the chill? Join in and share with us your winter inspiration! We'll be back tomorrow with more inspiration from our latest Guest Designer and the Funkie side of the Design Team will be back with their projects next Wednesday.

Keep warm!
