Color Throwdown #7

Hi everyone! It is week 7 of the Color Throwdown Challenge and this week I have chosen Apricot Appeal, Ballet Blue and Bashful Blue for my challenge. As summer winds down, I am itching to begin my fall cards with those deep rich colors, but there is still lots of summertime left, so I forced myself to use some brighter hues! If you don't have these Stampin'Up! colors, feel free to use something close; we can't wait to see what you come up with! Remember, if you've got a blog, post a comment here and link it to your blog. If you don't, you can post it on SCS, just be sure to use CTD7 in your posting. So here's my creation for this week:

LeAnne Pugliese-WeeInklings.




Cathy Indelicato/Crafty Thoughts...


Kisa Peters - Kisa's Paper Cuts


Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor




Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy

GORGEOUS samples, girls. Each one is sooo pretty! I was excited when I saw Ballet Blue and Apricot...two of my favorite SU colors.
