Default CC578 Looking Elegant in Old Bermuda (04-12-16)

Hello Color Challenge Friends!!

We have some lovely and bold colors for you this week! Before we get right at it though, let's celebrate our favorite from last week:
Barbara was our hostess and she picked Linda's (aka Holstein) card here.

This is what she said about Linda’s card:
"This stunning card deserved to be the CC577 fave all on its own, but how
could I not choose it when Linda named her card in my honor! Thank you,
Linda, for this lovely card, and thanks to all of you who sent me prayers
and good wishes for my recovery. I'm doing well!"


Barbara, we are all so glad to hear that your recovery is going well - we will continue sending healing wishes your way!!

Congrats, Linda! The code to add the badge to your blog is attached below, and your card also will be pinned on our Pinterest Challenge board. Check it out here.

So, on to this week’s challenge….Our colors this week are:
Old Olive
Bermuda Bay
Elegant Eggplant




Dessert will be to use either kind of embossing!

Here are some samples to get the creative juices flowing:

My 1st card (Maura aka Beesmom)
My 2nd card

Stef’s card aka dahlia19

Also, our guest designers for April:

Julie Warner aka justwritedesigns

Darla aka DJRants

CC578 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 CC578 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Love these colors! Had fun making this bird image, inspired by the spring time birds here, and the Japanese Gardens I visited in March. Here's bluebird

Smile CC578, IC541 Gold Leaf Jar

Had fun taking these awesome colors and creating a card- using October 2015's paper pumpkin kit- Blissful Bouquet- and a mason jar card from Recollections. My second inspiration was this awesome bird image from this week's inspiration challenge. Here's Gold Leaf Jar

Better late than never, right? Crafting time was in short supply last week. I finally took some time to play last night - so sleep was in short supply! I had fun with this card and the color combo. Here it is: Morning Cuppa by cdimick - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
