Default CC255: Pretty Mambo Blossoms!

Okay...first I would like to say that I am not a pink person! Meaning? I generally do not gravitate toward pinks. However, this color combo just kept screaming at me...metaphorically...do not want you all thinking that I am really crazy! Hee! Some may feel it is the best combined pink hues ever. Others of you may think pepto exploded! Just give it a try. It may be an "a-ha" moment for you. The dessert option is cliche', but have a heart it can be fun!

CC255:

Pretty Mambo Blossoms!

Please check out the SU color combo link to see colors!


Pretty in Pink

Melon Mambo (pink passion or PTI raspberry fizz)

Blush Blossoms

Neutrals of Choice

This week's dessert option is HEARTS! However, as an added bonus, you can add the color RED in a heart shape only in any medium from brads, cardstock, chipboard, stickers, metals, etc.

Thanks for sampling with me this week Amber and Vera!

AmberDawn

Vera

CC255 Gallery


Please keep in mind, too, that while we list SU colors for the challenges these are just color reference points. Use the closest colors you have. We want everyone to be able to play!!!

Please put CC255 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card! If you need help uploading
click here!

I will be hosting the color challenges for the next few weeks. If there is a color combo you want to see using any of the new in colors, please pm me with the link to the card. Try to stay within three color choices. Thanks so much!

Have no idea how my Christmas card ended up in this gallery! It was for SC 255 so maybe the number made it jump in here.

LOVE the pinks, Betty, so this was a way fun challenge for me. Thanks! I think in my cardstock stash that I have more pinks and greens than any other colors. Loved your challenge!

It always amazes me how the color challenges work with my personal needs. Today I needed a Thinking of You card for an elderly lady. The color challenge is perfect!

Is Blush Blossom still a color? Paper I used on this card came in my starter kit in 2000. (Not a fave, can you tell?) I do love most pinks so this was a fun and quick challenge.
