Default CC746 Grannies and Brides do the Mambo

Hello Color Challenge Fans! It's Jeanne this week and it’s time for a new color challenge and since it is the start of the month, it's time for new Guest designers.




But first let's start with the Mary’s favorite from last week. She chose this gorgeous card "USA" by Robin aka Stamperrobin. Mary said: “I loved everything about this patriotic card that Robin created. The embossed edge, the curved borders, the Americana style hearts and the bold sentiment- it all reflects her heart for America and why we celebrate the day".

Congrats Robin! The code to add the badge to your blog is below. We will also feature your card on our Pinterest Board. See that here.

Now for our July Guest Designers. I'd like to introduce Diane, Holley and Terry. Diane was Pam's fave from CC708, Holley was Mary's from CC740 and Terry was Pam's fave from CC727. Welcome ladies - we're excited to see your beautiful creations this month!

This month we are adding a theme to our challenges - Christmas in July! This theme is optional and in addition to our weekly dessert. The team thought it might be fun to get a jump start on Christmas cards with all types of color combinations. So let the creativity flow and inspire us to finish those holiday cards early!

Now on to this week's challenge. I thought I'd give you all a semi-traditional color mix for the holidays - not too far off red and green!
Grannies and Brides Do the Mambo



Granny Apple Green
Blushing Bride
Melon Mambo
Neutrals of choice


Dessert: Add stripes!

Your SCS DT member samples:

Jeanne aka Penny 627
Mary aka MaryR917
Diane aka dcinkit
Holley aka holley smith
Terry aka Gusterry

CC746 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 CC746 in your keywords section (and if you have more than one challenge use a comma to separate them) so we can find your card!

Smile CC746 pretty pinks and a green

Jeanne- love this challenge! Great to use up those nice color strips, which I used for my striped background. Added a sentiment panel from my stash and a vertical washi tape pink border. Finished with a dotted bow. Here's pretty pinks and a green

Thanks for the lovely colors, Jeanne! Here's my Foxglove. I think I came close w/ the colors & I used some die cut crochet borders to make my "stripes". Thanks so much for looking.

Decided to use the closest stamp set instead of hunting for a Christmas one this time around. I'll be ready, however, for the next "Christmas in July" challenge.
Thanks for the beautiful colors!

Blushing Birthday
