Elegant Jewels

It is Cec here and I am your hostess for the current challenge. I am calling it Elegant Jewels and here is how I describe it: Let's make a vintage or shabby chic project in jewel tone colours such as deep purple, emerald green, jade green, burgundy, bright turquoise to name a few AND to make your project extra special, add some sort of jewel or gem, which can be anything from a dollar store find to a piece of broken jewelry.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot here at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. And there are Top 3 Badges for three further outstanding entries, chosen by the Design Team.

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 have 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.

This week the Funkie side of the team are here with some wonderful inspiration for you. To get the details of their creations, just click on their blog names and you will be taken directly to their posts.

Once you have checked out their projects, we hope you will join in on the challenge and share your creation with us. The challenge runs until 11:55 pm on April 24th so you have lots of time to create.

In the meantime come back tomorrow to see what our Guest Designer has created and then next Wednesday the Funkie gals on the team will be here with their inspiration.


  1. So bright & perky!
    I think these are great pieces of inspiration- esp in April; the DIAMOND month!

    The idea of jewels means this page will fill up with color not unlike a Mother's Ring!

  2. I'm not sure if my entry is jewel toned enough?! If it isn't please do delete it, but I did try to use rich colours so am hoping that it does. Wonderful inspirations from the talented DT, as always, thank you for the challenge too x
