May Color Combo with Heather H. (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! Thanks so much to everyone who joined in with our last challenge - look for winners and a few featured players at the bottom of this post!

This month I went with a softer spring color combo! I hope you will play along - don't forget, one lucky winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Winnie and Walter! Here is my inspiration for this month's Color Combo:

And here is my color inspiration for this month:

This time around I found some pattern paper that pulled together colors from my inspiration photo. It didn't hurt that it even had roses on it like the inspiration photo! I used Essentials: Noelle Cutaways to die cut my pattern paper background, then used Sketchy Thoughts and Sketchy Thoughts Cutaways to create the sentiment focal point. I tore apart the edges of part of a doily and twirled it around to create a lacy spot to place the speech bubble, then punched a hole in the top corner to tie some twine through. A few clear droplets finish this off! 

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! Every single project was lovely, but I thought I'd give a shout out to a few that especially caught my eye!

First up - I LOVE this take by Karen; - she perfectly captured the colors from the inspiration photo - and I love that she used Tulips as well! And how clever to make a wreath with the tulips!

And then there is this vibrant beauty from Dana; - aren't those watercolors so pretty? I love how the flowers overlap - and the touches of sequins is the perfect finishing touch!

And finally - this take from Preeti;! I love her use of the florals, and the slightly more muted take on the colors in the inspiration photo, not to mention the splatter and sequins to finish it off!
