Susan's Garden Club Susan's Garden Designer Challenge

Susan’s Garden Designer Challenge – December

December 12, 2017
Hi everyone!

The Susan’s Garden Design Team are back today with our final Designer Challenge for the year.

Christmas is now only a couple of weeks away. When people think of Christmas and colors, the most traditional colors that come to mind are the colors red and green. For our challenge this month, our design team are to include the colors red, green and white with either gold or silver on their projects. It doesn’t have to be a Christmas card as these colors can be used throughout the year.

For our Challenge today we are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website to 3 winners. 

To enter, simply leave a comment on this blog post below and answer this question: “What Susan’s Garden products would you like to find under your Christmas tree this year?”

We will select 3 lucky winners in a random drawing.
