Default CC668 Sweet Chocolate Macaron (01-02-18)

Hello Color Challenge Fans and a Happy New Year! It's Tuesday and time for another color challenge. #668 on the charts for us. Our color challenge designers are refreshed after having a week off. In fact, some are still away for the holidays.

Before we discuss this week's colors, let's take a look at Barbara's faves from CC666 & CC667. For CC666, she chose this sweet Happy Holidays card from Kim akaluvflowers. For CC667, she chose this Let It Snow beauty from Darsie aka Darsie1.

Barbara said: "Kim and Darsie each chose adorable snowman images, and then colored them to perfection, using only the week's colors and neutrals. They both incorporated the dessert option into their cards, too! These cards are perfect examples of what a Color Challenge entry is all about!"

Congrats Darsie & Kim! The code to add the favorite badge to your Blog is located at the bottom of the post. We will also feature your card on our Color Challenge Pinterest board. See that here.

And since it's a new month we also have 2 new Guest Designers. Bringing their talents to the color challenge team in January is Kim aka Luv Flowers and DJ aka DJRants.

DJ was our fave from CC630 and CC637. Kim was our fave from CC627 and CC666.

Now onto this week's challenge. I chose a couple of the in-colors plus a neutral.

Are you ready for a sweet chocolate macaron?


Dessert Option: Something new - stamp, die, technique or a New Years card.

Our color divas this week
