Colorful Saturday Challenge - August 3, 2013

Welcome to this weeks Colorful Saturday Challenge.

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.  I now have to get that set.  Thank everyone for playing, let's see more this week.

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

After playing with these I really like this combo.  The Gumball Green just sets off the Smoky Slate.

Here are my projects:

OK  I must admit I was never going to get the Gorgeous Grunge set, but we got it free at convention, after this card I am now hooked.  Doesn't it look good with Smoky Slate.  I have to find something to use the skid marks on now, any suggestions?
