Default CC251: Barely Dusty Grays!

I am so proud of myself! I have used all of the new in colors at least once during the past several color combo challenges! Now, some are easy and absolutely no brainers! However, there are a couple that scare me a bit. Last week's crush and this week's dusty durango! HOWEVER!!!! I kept playing around with different color combos and I have to admit I am starting to feel the love for dusty! I really think you will go WOW with this color combo, too! IT JUST WORKS!!!! Wait and see! YOU are going to make your card and gasp! LOL!!!


This weeks colors are....
Barely Dusty Grays

Barely Banana

Dusty Durango(really rust)

Basic Gray

Neutrals of Choice

This week's dessert option is charming! Add a charm of choice to your card!

I asked Cathleen and Cindy to sample with me this week! Thanks so much you two! Gorgeous designs!

ctorina(Cathleen)

Cindy_Haffner

CC251 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 CC251 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!

I will be hosting the color challenges for the next few weeks. If there is a color combo you want to see using any of the new in colors, please pm me with the link to the card. Thanks so much!

Great color combo!

Since I was woken up by a little boy VACUUMING his bedroom at 1:52 AM, I decided to stamp...Hey, I was surprised he decided to CLEAN! LOL

Another winner, Betty!

I admire how you come up with color combos that I would NEVER think of...and I love them! I usually have to give them some thought since they aren't like my old "tried & true" choices! Thanks!

What a COOOL combo! I did use So Saffron instead of Barely Banana because the ink just wasn't showing up for me. LOVE it! Thanks Betty!
