Default CC431 -MIDNIGHT RAZZLEBERRY GUMBALLS - 6/18/13

Time for some rich jewel tones!! I think these three colors ROCK together, but most of the feedback I have been getting from my team mates is more like, "You're killing me Karen" Bwahahaha......we don't call this a CHALLENGE for nothin' ya know!!! So, these very challenging colors are:

MIDNIGHT MUSE
RICH RAZZLEBERRY
GUMBALL GREEN

mail.png


AND for dessert.......OVALS! Let's see some OVAL shapes on your cards!!

And here are your samplers for today:

Vicki Dutcher -

Karen Barber

and our guest designers:

Diane - Pinkberry

Claudia - cjzim

GALLERY CC431

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 CC431 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.

"Challenge" is the operative word here....these colors were indeed that! Rich jeweltones is an apt description. : ) Thanks for the Tuesday Enigma. Karen.

Smile CC431 Chillin' With My Popcorn

Awesome colors, Karen! I used a dc circle for "my dessert", and played off the girly pinks in my background patchwork and paper against the cooler toned blues and greens. This is dedicated to my DD Here's Chillin' With My Popcorn

Heart CC431 Floral thank yous

Karen- such terrific colors, I had to try another one- used Stampa Rosa's Signing A Card with Muzzy the Mouse, and added an embossed argyle background. Finished with a striped ribbon border. Here's Floral thank yous

I enjoyed this color challenge this week -- however I thought the razzleberry, looked more purple to me ... and that is what I had on hand, so I used that. Here is my card!

I love these colors! I have the basic same colors in my bathroom although the green is probably more Old Olive. Here is my card:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=49043

This was tough for me today. I like these colors, but I wasn't in the mood to work with them. (that WAS the challenge!)

I have seen lots of fishtail banners on blogs recently (PTI, MFT), so I decided give that look a try.

My only regret is that I did not emboss either the gumball green paper or the midnight muse paper before I assembled the card. Too late now!

Here is my Banner Birthday Card

Thanks for the challenge!!

Pulled out the old techniques and old stamp set for this one. Sorry the photo does not do it justice. Great combo! I forgot about dessert, usually my favorite course!
