Default CC622 Watermelon & Mints at Night (02-14-17)

Hello Color Challenge Fans! Welcome to this week's challenge. It's #622 on the Charts for us!

Also, the team would like to wish a Happy Valentine's Day to all our stamper friends here on SCS.

Let's start things off by announcing the favorite card from the CC621 Gallery. Maura was our hostess and she chose this Cat Valentine card from HowdyHeidi.

Maura said: "There are so many great elements in this card - the sassy cats, the jaunty angle of the stitched panel, the polka dot hearts, the twine, and the fabulous background - and the ending result is such a fun, whimsical card! I love it"!

Congrats Heidi! The code to add the badge to your blog is below. Your card will also be featured on our color challenge Pinterest board. See that here.

Now onto this week's challenge.I haven chosen 2 in-colors and a regal.

Are your ready for "watermelon & mints at night"?

watermelon wonder
mint macaron
night of navy


Dessert Option:
use designer paper. Will you take that challenge!!

This Week's Design Diva's

Please keep in mind, that while we list Stampin'-Up colors for the challenges, these are just color reference points. Use the closest colors you have. We want everyone to be able to join in with us.

Remember to put CC622 in your keywords section. If you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate so we can find your card!

Joanne, it's reminiscent of Sage Shadow.

Heart CC622 Love You This Much

Love these colors! great for a woodland scene- for my fox and buddy- maybe a badger? got a aspen tree embossed panel from my stamping buddies, added some die cuts and coloring. Remember this children's book title? Just in time for Valentine's Day Here's Love You This Much

Cool CC622 Tropical Thanks

Wishing for a warmer climate- so I made this tropical scene, complete with sun umbrella, beach, and a large orange fish. Added an orange doily and mint green washi tape for my embellishments. Here's Tropical Thanks

Where does the time fly??? I've had this color challenge on my mind since reading it a day late ... the just "schtuff" & more & more! Then decided to make a stack to send to my team, so I'm still stampin'! LOL Love these colors.

Happy weekend, y'all!

'Cuz You're #1 !
