Default CC596 Always Eating Cherries at the Pool Party (08-16-16)

Hello Color Challenge Friends!!

Time to celebrate our favorite from last week:
Barbara was our hostess and she picked Julie's (aka asweetjewel) card here!

This is what she said about Julie’s card: "I love the dreamy quality of this watercolor beauty, and the great sentiment, too! This card makes me smile!"

Congrats, Julie! The code to add the badge to your blog is attached below, and your card also will be pinned on our Pinterest Challenge board. Check it out here.

So, on to this week’s challenge….Our colors this week are:
Cherry Cobbler
Always Artichoke
Pool Party



Dessert will be bling of some kind!!!!

Here are some samples to get the creative juices flowing:

My 1st card aka Beesmom
My 2nd card

Mary’s card aka MaryR917

Our fabulous guest designers:
Bev aka guneauxdesigns

Cindy aka Weekend Warrior

CC596 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 CC596 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Oh my goodness! I am so thrilled beyond words to have received this honor, thank you ever so much for choosing my card as the color fave! It is really all of you here at SCS who inspire me not only with the daily challenges, but also your kind messages of encouragement. I just like to play, play, play...

I do not have a blog, so I am not sure what to do with the badge. Can it be added to my signature?

I didn't have Cherry Cobbler, so I subbed Barn Door distress stain. I hope Dazzling Diamonds works for the bling. Here is my card.

What a fun color combination! I skipped dessert and created my own "DSP" with watermelons (instead of cherries) at the pool

I like these colors. I think this may be the first time I have combined two challenges.

Here's mine:

I liked the colors you chose, Maura. I wasn't sure about the pool party so I just sponged it lightly to make it look like the sky. This card has a kitty that is purrfectly content watching it snow and there is no doily for the valence as there is on my other card, which is posted in my gallery. My son liked it better that way. I love the new DSP, which will be available to customers September 1. I thought it looked liked Victorian wallpaper! Thank you for the challenge.

I did an "L" challenge for our alphabet challenge this week, and went back to using these colors again which work so well for Christmas cards. I used real red instead of the cherry cobbler to stamp with as the cherry cobbler looked too dark on the pool party squares.
