Exciting and Colorful News!

Hello, and Happy Tuesday!!

Anyone who follows my blog knows that I LOVE color challenges.  Well, imagine my excitement when I received a private message on SCS asking me to be a Guest for the Color Challenge Design Team!!  WooHoo!  I squealed so loudly, my husband asked what was going on!  He is happy for me, even though he doesn't know a garden green from a wild wasabi!  LOL

So, this week's colors are melon mambo, pink pirouette and whisper white.  The dessert is to use vellum. This was tricky for me on two counts.  First, I often use pink with other colors, but rarely feature so much pink on one card.  Then there was the vellum.  I wasn't even sure if I had any, but then remembered a small stack of 4x6 pieces in different colors and patterns.  I decided on this white piece with swirls.  I like it over the pink pirouette, and I think it goes well with this stylized flower from "Friends Never Fade."  Yes, I use this image a lot...but I LOVE it! In addition to the 2 shades of pink, I also used my smoky slate marker, then cut it all out with the scallop circle punch.  I used "Teeny Tiny Wishes" again with the word window punch.  My accessories are the melon mambo organza ribbon, and some silver beads from a big box store.  They are part of my stash that I am continuing to whittle away.

I hope you can join the challenge this week.  I'll be visiting galleries to see what everyone creates.  Thanks for checking out my blog again today!
