CC262: Rich Olive Opulence!
It is time for another SCS color combo challenge with dessert option! I was looking at the color choices we have used so far with these in colors and realized we have not used one of the more popular color combos yet. This one is straight out of the catty! Hey, what can I say? I have dp I need to use! I KNOW you are going to love these colors!

CC262: Rich Olive Opulence!

Rich Razzleberry (elegant eggplant)

Old Olive

Orchid Opulence

Neutrals of Choice

This week's dessert option: SWIRLS! Use some swirls on your card. You can add either die cut swirls, stamped swirls, or in dp format with swirls...or some other creative way to do swirls.

This week I asked Carrollann and Chris to sample with me! Thanks so much, girls!




CC262: Card 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 CC262 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. Try to stay within three color choices. Thanks so much!

I haven't played in a Colour Challenge for soooooooooo long - and when I saw today's combo, I couldn't resist, considering I received my first pre-order shipment of Rich Razzleberry CS only last week. So here's my card:

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL colors, Betty!!! I had received this PSX stamp a few days ago. I inked and colored it then.....with no particular use in mind. Your challenge today could not have been more perfect! : ) Now instead of a colored image, I have a card! Thanks!

Good one, Betty! Thanks. Here's my

The colours were a little bit scary for me ... but that's why it's called a Challenge, right? Thanks Betty! Here's my

markie's mom 03-16-2010 05:34 AM

WOW! I LOVE this color combo!!!! I LOVE it!!!!!

I had a card in my mind the MOMENT I saw this challenge! I love when that happens! Too bad I cut and had to re-cut the Spellbinders in 3 different colors until I was happy! LOL

Here's today's submission

I didn't even look at the dessert option - I'll have to take another look and if I get a chance, maybe make another card.

Pretty color combo, Betty!! This was just a quick *little* project, but figured I'd post anyway:

When I saw the combo description, I was very skeptical. For some reason, I've never been an orchid opulence fan. But seeing all the FABULOUS samples done so far, I think I've been converted! I'm gonna have to give this one a try. :-)

Awesome colours!

kmahany 03-16-2010 11:01 AM

I wasn't sure I would like this combo when I was first reading about this week's colors. But I sure love them now!! I was out of Old Olive and serendipitously realized that the new Kioshi BG line has some of these exact colors in it!! I love how mine turned out and will upload it as soon as it is dry and ready for a picture. I will be getting called in to work here shortly too, but I will add it to my gallery asap!!

Thanks for the great challenge Betty!! :-)

brnidgrl 03-16-2010 11:08 AM

I love this color combination. I've done the rich razzleberry and the old olive before I love the Orchid Opulence with it!


Here is mine!


scrappyandhappy 03-16-2010 11:20 AM

Here is my card for today.
I have a child with strep so I was not able to do this today, but had the perfect color match that I wanted to enter. I hope you will accept this just the same.
Blessings for a great and relaxing day!


BevMom 03-16-2010 11:42 AM

Yay! I got to play! :)
Thanks for these cool colors, Betty!

These are the prettiest colors. All the cards in the gallery are just shouting Spring to me. I hope I can try one later.
