Colorful Saturday Challenge - August 24, 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.  

Last week’s winner was Cynthia, click here to see her card.  Isn’t it a great card.  Thank everyone for playing. 

So let’s see what this week’s colors are?


I really out did myself this week.  I did 4 cards well actually only 3 since one is a copy and a slight change.


I had to play with the new Card Thinlits so these two card use them and I really like the Pretty Print Embossing Folder and the Beautiful Baroque Embossing folder so I couldn't choose.

  1. I like the spinner card w the reindeer. I like that he not only spins across the care, but reveals a message as he spins.
    I like the old phonograph card too.
    Nice color palette to work with.
