Welcome to week 3 of the new weekly Color Challenge over at the Utah Diva’s International Blog.  All I can say about this weeks color inspiration – is where can I get some of those?  I need one now!  Look at what Gretchen has for us this week – 

Yummy!  I was kind of late with this one and didn’t have any ideas at all so I started to play with the colors and throw a card together and before I was done I threw it right in the trash – well not exactly I saved all the pieces that I hadn’t messed up already.  So it was time for a do over because that first idea did not work out at all.  I left and ate some dinner and came back with a new idea.  This one turned out cute – I just wish I had some chocolate to put inside – well I actually do have some chocolate – Greg brought some back to me from his trip to Paris – but I have it hidden in a secret place so I won’t eat it too quickly.  Anyway here is my second attempt at a creation with these colors:

I’m going to add some more details later with step by step pictures on how I make my mini milk cartons – mine come together perfectly every time but I have a little trick.  And I’ll tell you how I made the frosting for the cupcake too!  Come back on Wednesday for the details on both of those.  Now it is your turn to play with these colors – then go to the UDI blog and add your creation to the linky section.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
