Default CC581 - BLISSFUL WONDERS OF SOFT SKIES WITH PIZZAZZ!! - 5/3/16

HELLO STAMPERS!! It's a new month and we have some new guest designers with us.

But, first on this perfect day in the month of MAY, let's tell you who the favorite was from last week. Vicki was our hostess, and she chose this beauty from Beverly aka guneauxdesigns -her Blooms card.

Vicki said:
"She has such beautiful coloring on her card, - just stunning!"
Oh my, I have to totally agree with Vicki this week, that's MY favorite TOO!!

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

And, the new guest designers that are bring their amazing design skills to the Color Challenge team this month are Diane aka dcinkit. She was the winner of our Bingo game in March- CC573. And, also Kia aka kiagc. She was our fave from both CC539 & CC572. Please give them a welcome when you comment on their cards!

Now - onward to the colors for this week: (I love these colors together)


BLACKBERRY BLISS
WISTERIA WONDER
SOFT SKY
PEAR PIZAZZ

DESSERT - SEQUINS

SO THERE YOU HAVE IT - "BLISSFUL WONDERS OF SOFT SKIES WITH PIZZAZZ!"

I once put a piece of blackberry bliss cardstock next to a wisteria wonder and bam!! I thought those two colors belong together!!! Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did- I made THREE cards this week!!!

and for your sample viewing pleasure:

VICKI
KAREN
Diane
Kia

GALLERY CC581

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 CC581 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Default CC581 Springtime Coffee

Karen- great colors, thanks! It allowed me the chance to mix cool garden colors with warmer hues. I used Impression Obsessions' Espresso for my main image, adding some texture with dry embossing (diamonds, left vertical border, and dotted swiss, top horizontal border) and did some die cuts (scalloped vertical borders, hearts). Finished with two vertical tied borders. Here's Springtime Coffee

Heart SC591 CC581 Smile

Had fun making this card, using this week's colors. Added a recycled light blue advertising card for the top and bottom borders, along with a kleenex boxtop lid for my magenta "frame" for my flowers. My sentiment is also recycled, added my own "S". Here's Smile

Default CC581 Color Challenge

Hey, my friends!! Sorry to be so late in posting my card for the Color Challenge, but I got sick Tuesday morning with flu-like symptoms and have basically been in bed since. I feel better today, but still not well, so I'm adding my card that I made early Tuesday morning to the gallery for the Color Challenge! Here's the card! Enjoy!

Here is my entry for the color challenge - it is a very muted sympathy card. I don't have blackberry bliss so substituted elegant eggplant instead.
