Craft-Room Challenge #89 ~ Anything 3D

Hi, welcome here at the Craft-Room Challenge. Thank you for your beautiful entries to our Vintage Christmas challenge. Sorry to say but there were gorgeous entries that didn't fit our new rules!
The winners and Top 3 will be announced here next week.

Before we get to my challenge a few words about those rules.   It is so frustrating for us visiting your sites only to realise you have not read our rules.   That is why we are not commenting on disqualified entries.   Sure we could delete them or tell you but if you have not taken notice why should we work harder?   It may take us a few days to visit like everyone else we have busy lives but if you have not heard from us by the end of the fortnight you were disqualified.

For challenge #89, I have chosen the theme of "3D".  You can create a card, a canvas or anything you'd like as long as there is a 3D element on it.  Please note **sticking a flower on just as an embellishment won't count - it has to be an obvious 3D element within the project.**  I also ask you to please read our rules as we have changed some of them.  If the rules of the challenge aren't met we will not be leaving you a comment.  I hope you will find some inspiration in the wonderful creations of my teammates and take the time to enter this current challenge. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Our sponsor this time around is Tando Creative.

PLEASE take a moment to check out our simple rules!
Our rules are shown in the page Pesky Rules above but to give you a quick run down they are:
* Must be new (no back links) 
* Fit our theme (no token gestures)
* Maximum of 3 entries to our challenge (limit of 5 other challenges entered)
* We will ignore any invalid entry
* On your blog post add our challenge and a link back to this site.

Our Rules

We are refreshing things just a little and have some updates/revisions to the rules. Please read these and be sure your entry qualifies.

1 You must check the challenge details and comply with all the specifications. i.e. Tell us what about xxxx inspired you means we expect to see some information relating your project to our challenge on your post.

2 Token elements are insufficient if our challenge is for example "Wings" that tiny little flying thing in the bottom left background is not qualifying element.

3 Entries that are really promoting products and or other challenges are no longer allowed.

With these 3 rules we are looking to see that your entry is really a response to the challenge. We work hard on our team inspiration pieces, we have a system in place to make sure we will comment on all the entries we can and this team often comment on more than the those required by our system. All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.

We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.

4 You may not enter more than 5 other challenges besides ours that is a total of 6 challenges entered.

5 You may not enter this challenge more than 3 times per theme.

6 Winner and Top 3 will be selected by team vote

7 While we try to comment on all entries some of us have a problem with WordPress and have found that we cannot always successfully comment on these.

7a We are also cautious about having to fill in a questionnaire before we can comment. We might not take the time if we have a lot to get through.

7b please turn off word verification

8 Our decision is final in all considerations of compliance with these rules.

9 Prizes are offer depending on availability, we are dependant on our very generous sponsors and from time to time we will provided the prize ourselves.

10 Please remember to add a link from your post to our challenge site here.

The purpose of this update is to encourage our followers who regularly join in with some fabulous work that is inspired by the challenge and who take the time to share it. We do not care what your style/standard is we just want to see you grow as artists and perhaps play a part in your journey.
