Hello and a Color Challenge Contest!

It's time for a new Color Challenge at Splitcoaststampers!  This week is very special because it marks the 700th SCS Color Challenge and there are going to be prizes!  The Design Team members have chosen their favorite color combination from when they hosted between the 600th and 700th challenge and will be giving away individual prizes for their favorite. 

In addition, there will be a grand prize winner to be chosen from those that make cards for all five of the DT members challenges.  It's very exciting and I hope you'll use the link above to join in this week!

For my favorite, I chose CC654 - Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Fresh Fig, with a dessert option to use metallics.  That challenge was my first time as a Color Challenge hostess.  Here are my cards from CC654...

...and my new card for CC700 using the same colors.

For my current card, I heat embossed the leaves in gold on Bristol paper, ink blended the 3 challenge colors, splattered with gold metallic paint then applied the same paint around the edges of the panel.  When dried it was added to a Fresh Fig card base.  After die cutting the sentiment from glitter paper, I used Score Tape to adhere to a strip of Gold Glimmer and added that to the card with foam tape.

A simple card but I think it really showcases all the colors.  Thanks so much for visiting, it's always so appreciated.  I hope you'll use the link above and join us this week for our 700th SCS Color Challenge!
