Default CC567 a strawberry macaron and espresso, please (1-26-16)

Hello Color Challenge Fans! It's Tuesday and time for another color challenge. #567 on the charts for us! Can you believe it's already the last Tuesday in January?

Let's start with the fave from last week. Maura was the hostess and she chose this beauty from Cindy aka weekend warrior - rose garden.

Maura said: "I love Cindy's use of bold watercolor, which makes the gorgeous white rose die cut just pop off the background. Her sprinkling of sequins is the perfect embellishment, as is the bold black sentiment - LOVE it!!"

Congrats Cindy! The code to add the badge to your blog is below. We will also pin your card to our CC Pinterest Board. See board here.

Now onto this week's challenge. I chose 2 in-colors and a neutral for my trio.

Are your ready for a strawberry macaron with espresso?




strawberry slush
mint macaron
early espresso

Dessert: a valentine using these non-traditional colors

Our color divas this week

Mary aka MaryR917 sample 1, sample 2

Stef aka Dahlia19 sample 1, sample 2

Kathy aka Kathy LeDonne sample 1, sample 2

Susie aka PaperPunchScissors


CC567 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 CC567 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Mary thank you for an other wonderful color challenge. Question - will my card be posted on Pinterest Color Challenge Board? If I need to do some extra, let me know?

Heart CC567, TLC570 You Warm My Heart

went with a green/pink/brown/red color combo, with white as my neutral. Used an evergreen and flowers wreath, fussy cut to size, and a dry embossed chain style background. Added some brown floral washi tape as my top border, embellished with a gathered brown and gold fabric/pink button combo. Sentiment comes from Taylored Expressions. Here's You Warm My Heart

Thanks for a great color combo. I no longer have strawberry slush; so I subbed it for Rose Red. The early espresso and mint macaron is a beautiful combination.
