March Color Combo with Heather H. (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! With all the birthday challenges and festivities on the Winnie and Walter Blog in February - we ended up taking a break for that month on the Color Challenge - so it is great to be back at it again this month! So for this month, with all the wonderful rainbow of new Catherine Pooler Inks in the Winnie and Walter Store - I decided to go with a rainbow challenge!

Here is my color inspiration for this month - instead of a specific list of colors, I fell in love with the rainbow of these bright bottles! So pretty!

I used the row of tiny hearts in the fun new Scenery: Seeing Hearts Stamp Set to create my rainbow heart border. I used a panel of white cardstock to stamp using nearly all the colors of Catherine Pooler Inks carried in the Winnie and Walter Store. Here is the order of colors from top to bottom: Party Dress, Rockin' Red, Orange Twist, Tiara, Grass Skirt, Lime Rickey, Fiesta Blue, Something Borrowed, and Flirty Fuchsia. I adhered that strip at an angle on the front of a white cardbase, trimming the extra off the sides. Finished off by adding the new In a Phrase: Hugs and Kisses sentiment die cut from dark gray cardstock. 

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! The entries this month were STUNNING! 

First up - these two cards by Rosali - WOW! The colors and layout on these is SOOO gorgeous! Great work!

Next up, LOVE this soft and sweet creation by Maryam! Such a lovely card with the gorgeous stamping of the strawberries, and the hidden sentiment. Beautiful!

Then we have this stunning creation from Pooja - love the fun layout, gorgeous watercolors, and the circle of gold with the lace from the doily! SOOOO very pretty!

And then this SWEET little CAS card from Trina P - I just can't get enough of this adorable little penguin, and could the sentiment on this be ANY more PERFECT?!?!?!? SO sweet!

And finally, how beautiful is this card by Andrea?!?!? I ADORE how she gold heat embossed that lovely image on the acetate for a shaker card! So elegant and lovely!!!


Time for Tea
No. 23 | Karen Ladd
Karen entered with this dainty and tea-rrific ATC! Really love the addition of the woodgrain and grid in the background.

And since we had so many gorgeous, colorful entries (and because I just feel like it and one the perks of being the boss at w&w is I can do these things on a whim!) I randomly chose one of the Heather's favorite cards featured above to also win as well!

No. 10 | Andrea Shell
Andrea's card is so classy and beautiful!  I love gold embossing on acetate to create a very lovely shaker.
