CCJC5 – Color Challenge

Every Saturday on the  Create with Connie & Julie site we issue a challenge.  Our subscribers are encouraged to enter the challenge to win fabulous prizes!  Last week's challenge winners were Robin and Sandra with Jeannine having an honorable mention!  Congratulations, ladies!


Well, Julie certainly came up with a BRIGHT color combination challenge for us over on Create with Connie and Julie today!  Our challenge was Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie.  I actually asked her…"what were you thinking?"  However, Stampin' Up!'s Welcome Neighbor Designer Paper from the Sale-A-Bration brochure, does have papers with those colors, so…it worked out!  I'm not sure that I LOVE this card, but it think it came together pretty well.


I started with a base card of Crushed Curry, then added the Melon Mambo.  On the Old Olive layer, I used the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder.  I added a strip of Welcome Neighbor Designer Paper with the Crushed Curry hearts.  Then the center houses are part of the Designer Paper, too.  I just cut a rectangle that had 3 houses on it.  That was layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  I punched the XL Flower from Melon Mambo cardstock and added little dots around the edges with my White Gel Pen.  I punched a 1" circle for the center from Pumpkin Pie and added more dots.  The center I stamped Best Wishes from Vintage Labels…another FREE Sale-A-Bration selection.  Finally, I added a Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon across the bottom, then a bow with a Square Fire Rhinestone Brad!
