Default CC575 - BLUSHING BLISSFUL BRIDES ~DO THE MACARON-A!

Hello Stampers!! Welcome to this week's color challenge.

First of all, let's see what Vicki's favorite was last week: She chose Priscilla aka catluvr2's "dotty feathers" card.
Vicki said: "I adore the fun feathers and her colored Hugs"!

Congrats Priscilla! The code to enter the badge on your blog is below. We will also feature your card on our Pinterest Board. See that here.


Secondly, lets announce this weeks colors!!

BLUSHING BLISSFUL BRIDES~DO THE MACARON-A!!





MINT MACARON
BLUSHING BRIDE
BLACKBERRY BLISS

and for dessert- USE A DIE CUT!!

Can I just say that this week I struggled WITH MY OWN COLORS!!!! Not sure what I was drinking the night I chose these colors, but I hope you all have an easier time with them than I did!!! I know I had one pallet in mind, and then when I went to send it I saw one of my team mates had chosen one of the colors in my pallet so I kind of randomly switched it out and WOW, what a difference a color makes!! Without further adeiu, I will leave you to decide for yourselves!!

Samplers for this week

Karen
Stef aka dahlia19
Carla aka covingtoncrafter
Pam aka wearestampers

CC575 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 CC575 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card.

These are lovely colors... you must have been drinking some fine red in a green bottle with a pink bow when you selected them

It's encouraging to hear the person who chose the colors say they struggled with them after having struggled with several of the combinations.

Heart CC575 Vintage Buttons 2

Karen- awesome colors, thanks! I used a punch for my tag, dry embossed it, did some coloring, and sewed on the buttons. Added a mulberry floss bow. Mounted this on a cream colored background, and added a vintage style rose panel. Here's Vintage Buttons 2

Thank you, Vicki, for favoring my "Dotty Feathers" from last week's color challenge. It's such an honor to have a card called out when there are so many beautiful creations each week.

I do love a challenge and this week's colors were difficult for me to photograph - I luv the Blackberry color, but it looks like black in the photo. Here is my "Where's My Stuff?

Here's another card for the color challenge. Wish I knew how to get rid of my duplicate post from my other card. My computer freaked and I didn't think it had posted.
