CC268: Old Banana Ballet (Tea Time)!
We are combining efforts again today for some much needed lovin'! Cindy (mothermark) Teapot Tuesday Challenge MMTPT91 "Many of you are familiar with Roseanne (Sumtoy) a cherished member of the SCS community! Roseanne has sent countless cards to others in their time of need. She is very active in the Need a Lift forum and its our chance to thank her and pay her back for her kindness. Please chec out this link for Roseanne's story. Thank you all! You can link to both challenges if you like!

I took a look at Cindy's teapot and had to decide on colors that were in the pot, but had not been used before in combo. Plus, I am trying to use retiring colors so it was tough to get some that worked. Did you know that in all of the SCS color combo challenges that ballet blue has ONLY been used 7 times? I could not believe it! Well, no wonder it is retiring! Poor thing! I chose two retiring colors and one that is staying...thank goodness! Love me some old olive! All in all, I really love this color combo! I am sure you can create some beauties with them!

CC268: Old Banana Ballet

Old Olive

Barely Banana

Ballet Blue

Neutrals of Choice

This week's dessert option: You can add a fourth color with RED Embellishments only!



CC268: 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 CC268 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!

OK do you know how HARD it was for me to find Barely Banana c/s?!? LOL! Guess I won't have to worry about using that up before July... ;)

Here is my card Hope I'm not cheating by using an old olive ribbon and a red butterfly as embellies?...

Obviously, I didn't look at the pic after I took it and before the upload. Much prettier IRL as the shimmer is too shimmery in the pic. http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=82162
