Hi everyone! 👋

Wow, this month is going by quickly! Before I share the details for the May challenge, it’s my pleasure to announce the April 2022 CSS Art Challenge winner!

🥁 drumroll 🥁

Congratulations to @mattgriffindev for winning the Particles challenge! 🎉

April 2022 Challenge Winner

Matt's submission snagged the win because of the creativity of his CSS piece & the way the particles played a part in the final product!

**🎨 May 2022 CSS Art Challenge Details**

This month’s challenge is titled ✨ microinteractions

Your goal this month is to create CSS art that pays extra attention to the small details that have big impact in the overall piece. Eye candy is the key here! 🍬

Create an art scene in a button that triggers some interatcion when clicked, or perhaps you'll build a landscape that engages with the user's mouse. Whichever route you decide to take this theme, we're looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Be creative and enjoy the process!
