Default CC590 Eating Cake and Pointing at the Wild Sky (07-05-16)

Hello Color Challenge Friends!!

Before we get right to our new colors, let's celebrate our favorite from last week:
Barbara was our hostess and she picked Roberta's (aka stampin'nana) card here!

This is what she said about Roberta’s card: "A stunning card, summery cool white-on-white, colored elements that pop right out at you, and incredibly clever use of the embossing folder."

Congrats, Roberta! 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.

And, because it's a new month, we have 2 new guest designers. Bringing her amazing mixed media talents is Ann aka annsforte3. She was the fave from CC567. We also have the legendary artist Dawn Easton aka treasureoiler. Dawn was the fave from CC560 & CC588.

So, on to this week’s challenge….Our colors this week are:
Soft Sky
Pacific Point
Wild Wasabi
Crumb Cake




Dessert will be "at the beach"!!!!

Here are some samples to get the creative juices flowing:

My 1st card aka Beesmom
My 2nd card

Mary’s 1st card , Mary's 2nd card

Ann aka annsforte3
Dawn Easton aka treasureoiler

CC590 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 CC590 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Thanks for such a great-looking color combo to try! Pacific Point is tricky for me on the "comfy" level, so 'challenge' is definitely the correct word, however welcome! LOL

Heart CC590 Julia's gift

Had fun recycling this gift box, which I colored and embossed. Added an apple print, and some owls, along with the matching sentiment. there's a twine wraparound under my blue ribbon, and I finished with a green and orange fabric corner tie. Here's Julia's gift

Heart CC590 How've ya Bean?

For today's color challenge- added some pizazz with some orange and a hint of red- you know I love coffee cards and recycling- so I used some fabric strips, a gift craft envelope, and did some "stitching" with my marker. Added a dc "to go" cup and some coffee beans. Here's How've ya Bean?

I've been playing with butterflies tonight, real ones as well. But here is the paper ones I've played with. Using this for the teapot challenge as well even though I made a different card for Donna.
