Default CC88: elegant celery

This color combo was suggested by golfingstamper. She saw these colors on a kleenex box and thought of card making, who hasn't done that before?? I really didn't like my first sample, so I tried again and I think it is much better. I hope you all enjoy!

CC88:

bordering blue

certainly celery

elegant eggplant

My samples:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...00&ppuser=2042

second try:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...00&ppuser=2042

Also, just a bit of a teaser.....there will be a special contest and an AWESOME prize for CC100. Made by one of the Dirty Dozen Alumni! So keep your eyes peeled for more hints in the weeks to come! This week's hint.....it is being made by Leigh O'Brien!!! And I'd love to keep it myself!
****no this is not one her purses from her gallery...(this was guessed by a color challenge participant)....way way awesomer and a complete one of a kind!****



Please put CC88 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card! If you need help uploading click here!

As always, I am open to suggestions for future color challenges! Please pm me if you have one. Including a sample is always appreciated! I will probably not respond, as I get several, but I save them for future reference!

This is the best I could do tonight. The thinking cap is just not on. Thanks for looking anyway! I do like the color combo even though my brain is on vacation. I'll have to try it again when my brain returns.

Thanks again for the challenge. I thought that the certainly celery was too bright at first, but then double checked my colors and it turned out I had green galore instead. Good thing I found that out before I made the card! It is so cool too that I wanted to make an anniversary card for my DH, and it turned out that the challenge colors are his favorites! Is that good luck or what?

Here it is:

Anniversary Card

Love the cards ladies...very nice.

I don't have any of the new colors yet. LOL... can't convince DH that I "need" them since my old SU pads still work like they did when they were all new YEARS ago... darn them for being such good quality! Tee hee...

Hopefully next week I can play along! Keep those inspiring cards coming!!

I can't wait to try this color challenge. I have the day off for a doctor's appointment today, so maybe I can get something done this afternoon.

Thanks!

Well, I must admit, when I read these color combination, I thought Emily's finally lost it! But from the cards that are being produced, I'd say it's a beautiful combination!

LET IT SNOW!

Thanks, Emily, for once again giving us the push we need!

Yeah! It's always a good day when I have time to do the Color Challenge before leaving for work! This one is pretty simple, but I needed a quick card this morning to send to a friend! Thanks for looking!

Happy for You
