Challenge Title: The Colors of October
Hostess: pattyb
Keyword: HYCCT1312
Date: Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Hello and welcome to the 4th annual Hope You Can Cling To challenge and card drive - we are thrilled to have you here with us.

Being an October baby I'm very familiar with the October birthstones which are: Opal, Tourmaline, & Pink sapphire

The October flowers are: Calendulas and Cosmos.

See the pictures below for some October goodness ;)

October is also the month of Hope, just one more reason why this challenge is perfect for this month!

Challenge translation: In honor of October make a card featuring pink, green, & yellow with a touch of something shimmery or opal looking. You may use any shade of pink, green, & yellow that you wish, pastels, earthy tones, or bright tones. Keep the theme of the card upbeat and happy!

I can't wait to see what you do with this color combo!

Thank you again for joining us, and see the details below for sending in your cards.

Beautiful combo Patty! I'm waiting for my "opal" to dry - that is just my favorite stone. My mom has the most beautiful opal ring!

LL's HYCCT1312 Colors of October Card by muzbysmom - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

My card base is yellow and the DP has the green and pink. I also feel the background DP has a little opal-y color in it (silverish whitish).

bensarmom 10-12-2013 08:21 AM

Patty, this is a beautiful combination of colors. Reminds me so much of spring colors which always cheer me up after the winter doldrums. Here's my card.
