Colorful Saturday Challenge - July 27, 2013

Every Saturday I will choose a Color Combo from either the Annual Catalog or the current mini catalog.  I will make two cards or projects using that color combination. I then challenge you to make at least one card or project using that color combo and post a link in the comments section to either your blog post on the challenge or your pinterest photo.  A random winner will be chosen each Friday and announced on the next Saturday Challenge.  The winner will receive a goodie bag or a set of note cards.  We did not have any entries last week.  So the prize goes unclaimed. Enter this week to win.

Today's Challenge is using Baked Brown Sugar and Cherry Cobbler.  I didn't know if I liked Baked Brown Sugar until I started using it for this Challenge now I rather like it.  Of Course I love Cherry Cobbler, just the name makes my mouth water.  This color Combo comes from the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog, page 19.

Here goes my samples hope to see yours soon.

Never to early to get your Christmas cards started.  This one I copied from the Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog.  I will be using this card for my October Christmas Card Class as I have to order more Baked Brown Sugar.
