It’s Saturday and time for another challenge at Create with Connie & Julie!  This week our challenge is a COLOR challenge – Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry.  The featured items this week are from the Stampin’ Up! Sale-a-Bration brochure – Good Neighbors stamp set and the Welcome Neighbor Designer paper pack.

Congratulations to last weeks winners – Robin Gregor was first place and Sandra Hansen was second place and Jeannine Norder earn an Honorable Mention.  Thanks for playing along last week!

This was a hard challenge for me – putting these colors together is not in my comfort zone.  So I went through a few different versions before settling on this one.

I used the Welcome Neighbor Designer paper pack for the flower – I’m not sure how well you can see it in the photo but there is a layer of Pumpkin Pie, then Crushed Curry and then Melon Mambo.  All three sizes of the flowers have all three colors in the layer.  Then I added a Pumpkin Pie Corduroy Brad in the center.  The flowers are the Flower, Daisies #2 Bigz die for the Big Shot.

Then the designer paper pack is also the striped paper strip and the little butterfly.  I also used the Good Neighbor stamp set on this card – can you see it?  I used one of the trees stamped in Old Olive ink as the leaves under the flower.
