CC400 ~retro challenge~ (11/6-12)
3 Attachment(s)
Happy Tuesday everyone and welcome to color challenge 400. I can't believe we are up to that number of weekly color challenges. Seems like not too long ago Betty was introducing challenge 300.

Speaking of Betty, our uber talented friend, is stepping down from the cc design team. She has been leading the group for 3 years now.

Her work & family responsibilities have to come first. So the rest of the team decided to dedicate this 400th challenge to her.

We have selected 3 challenges that she hosted since challenge 300 and are using those for this week. Hence the name "retro challenge".




Our idea is that you can choose any one of these 3 challenges and use the colors and dessert options from that challenge to create your card or project. Let us know which one you chose in your description.

Your keywords would be cc400 as well as the retro challenge you selected.

The design team this week:

Julia Aston (artystamper)

Karen Barber (karen b barber)

Vicki Dutcher (vdutchr)

Mary Marsh (maryr917)

Peggy McCurry (pegmac71)

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 CC400 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

A wonderful way to honor Betty, Mary. I always marvel at the gals who did a challenge week after week....many single-handedly for a long period of time. Betty gave us some wonderful combinations through the years. She will be missed. I chose her CC356 for my card today.


Robin Lee 11-06-2012 06:02 AM

How fun! I chose the handsome Cherry Night Cakes combo.

Wow! 400...thanks to all the members of the challenge team for all the hard work you do to make this challenge possible. I went with Cherry Night Cakes: Illusion of Love

lutheran 11-06-2012 05:59 PM

400? Really? Here's to the next 400! For this challenge, I revisited CC356. Indigo, Limeade, gray, white. It is a mashup of stamps from my top three fave stamp companies: SU, Hero Arts & CTMH. The "new" element is a new SU snowflake stamp and the new-to-me color combo for a holiday card.

MariLynn 11-08-2012 10:23 AM

A little late, but better late than never right? I choose cc306. The roses are supposed to be the raspberry color, but they were really hard to dye so that is as close as I could get.

Rachelrose 11-09-2012 08:06 AM

I also chose CC356 - great colors!

Shades of Gray

I haven't worked with grays much - I usually use browns as my neutrals and this opened my eyes to how elegant grays can look!

My 3rd card for this challenge. LOL!
