Default CC609 A Favorite in your Basic Garden (11-15-16)

Hello Color Challenge Fans! Can you believe it's already mid-November and time for another color challenge? #609 on the charts for us!

Let's start first with the fave from last week. Maura was our hostess and she chose Believe Dearly by Jan aka PreciousKitty.

Maura said: "I love her soft background with the twinkling stars and the 3D look she created with her trees and the sweet deer trio - a magical scene! Well done, Jan"!

Congrats Jan! The code to add the badge to your blog is attached below. Your card also will be pinned on our Pinterest Color Challenge Board. Check it out here

Now onto this week's challenge. Are you ready for "A Favorite in your Basic Garden? There is a little twist with the colors this week. I am letting you have a choice with the 3rd color. But it has to be a red shade.

Stampin' - Up has had a lot of pretty red's over the years: cherry cobbler, real red, rose red, watermelon wonder, riding hood red, poppy parade, raspberry ripple, bravo burgundy and ruby red to name a few. So pick one of those and add garden green plus basic black.


garden green
basic black
your favorite red


Dessert: Make something with a Christmas theme.

Our color divas this week

Mary aka MaryR917 Sample 1, Sample 2
Maura aka Beesmom
Carolyn aka Snowmanqueen
Roberta aka Stampin'Nana - Sample 1 Sample 2

CC609 Gallery


Please keep in mind, 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 CC609 in your keywords section. If you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them so we can find your card!

Great colors! Went a bit more olive, and did some sponging. Used rust and raspberry as accent colors. Here's Santa Clara HB- where I went to school

Thanks Mary for this great color combination- I chose to use Riding Hood Red (I love all of the reds but RRR matched the DSP )
