Happy Tuesday and welcome to this week's color challenge. It's #452 on the charts for us. I am your hostess this week and decided to repeat something I did as your hostess back in August.
First, we have our color challenge favorite from last week. Nancy had trouble choosing just one because there were so many really creative and beautiful cards using so many styles and occasions, But, she finally chose Marie aka momof5sons and her Christmas Amaryllis .
Nancy said:" Marie, I loved your gorgeous color combo for your beautifully colored amaryllis. I was impressed by your ribbon and twine treatment too. That is something I really struggle with to get just right!.
Congrats Marie. the code to add the badge to your blog is attached below.
Now onto this week's challenge. I am choosing 5 colors and you can pick 3 to work with or use all 5 of them. Just let us know which 3 you have chosen.
We are also running a contest for the next 2 weeks. See all the details below

Thanks, Mary, for the wonderful color challenge! I love these shades, and I needed a card for my DH who loves sailing. I used SU's Riveting set for my sentiment, and a dc compass- along with some dc buttons and black screen material. Diagonally paper pieced my larger background, and added some sparkle thanks to my stamping friends Here's Sea Compass

Mary, I am fashionably late but totally loved this combo. My sister has a birthday and I needed to create something anyway, so this was the result. I'd love the chance to guest hostess now and then in the New Year. Thanks for your commitment to keeping this challenge going week after week.
