Before we get to the challenge details, we wanted to let you know that we're going to shake things up a bit in 2024! We've been playing straight 'Anything Goes with the Featured Birthstone Colors' since we started this new challenge in January. The birthstone colors don't change and we don't want anybody to get bored, so we're adding an optional theme to each challenge beginning in January 2024! Be sure to see 'Upcoming 2024 Challenges' over on the right sidebar for more info!

Okay, back to this month's challenge! The featured birthstone colors in this challenge are Topaz & Turquoise. Our theme is always anything goes with the featured birthstone colors, and you may use one or both of these colors in your project. Just remember, the color(s) you choose should be prominent on your project.



And now for some awesome inspiration...
