The theme of this contest is ONE COLOR. There are many shades of ONE COLOR. You can choose any one color (and all the shades for that one color) for this contest. Pick anything you want to stitch, but it has to be ONE COLOR.
EXAMPLE: If you choose the color BLUE and are using DMC threads, you could use Cornflower BLUE, Periwinkle BLUE, Delft BLUE. As long as the color has the name of BLUE it is considered a shade of BLUE. As Magical525
pointed out: THERE ARE 50 SHADES OF PINK! This is your challenge!

First place special note: When you win first place, you will have to sit out of the next contest as a contestant. However, you WILL be an honorary judge for the following contest if that is something you are interested in. What this means is you will assist in scoring submissions. You can submit to the contest as a judge but your submission won’t count towards the competition itself (the judges participate but their entries don’t count).
