Default CC714 Vanilla Merlot Under the Shaded Spruce 11/20/2018

Hello Color Lovers! It's Tuesday and time for another color challenge. #714 on the charts for us.
Let's start with the fave from last week. Barbara was our hostess and she chose this beauty Four Squares by Precious Kitty aka Jan.

Barbara said: "The subtle color blocking behind the wintry tree is beautiful, especially with the silver stickles sprinkled here and there. I especially love the sentiment, though. An offer of love and support just at the moment it's needed."


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

Now onto this week's challenge. I have chosen some wonderful rich Christmas colors. Remember the challenge is to create a card with only the colors we give you plus, the neutrals.

Are you ready for some Vanilla Merlot Under a Shady Spruce?




Vanilla
Merry Merlot
Shaded Spruce


Dessert Option: Shimmer or Glitter

Here are some samples from our design team to give you some inspiration!


Barbara aka bejoyce

Pam aka Pam MacKay

Linda aka Holstein

Susan aka Susanbri

CC714 Gallery

Please keep in mind, that while we list SU colors for the challenges, these are just color reference points. Use the closest colors you have. We want everytone to be able to play!!

Please put CC714 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge, use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card.

Heart SC724 CC714 Santa's Sleigh

Used this week's colors (tweaked the merlot hue a bit) for my festive card. Colored my stamps with markers, and distressed the edges. Added a proper satin merlot like ribbon tie, and a white and green dotted ribbon border. Used festive paper for my background. Here's Santa's Sleigh

Well, I'm a bit late and didn't have the exact colors - but loved the results.
