July Color Combo with Heather H. (Challenge)

Good morning! Heather here stopping by this morning to share a new Color Combo Challenge with you! This month's color combo is bright and happy and colorful - a perfect cheery color combo for the middle of summer!

Here is my color inspiration for this month - I love these bright happy shades of green and yellow!

I used some adorable images from Happy Dance with Evelin T Designs for the elephant and bundle of balloons on my card, coloring them up with Copic markers to match my color scheme, and adding some details with a white gel pen. I die cut them with their Coordinating Dies as well.

Next, I created a shaker element by die cutting a panel of white cardstock with Essentials: Carly Cutaways (for the circle window) and Essentials: Katharine Cutaways (for the dotted rectangle). I stamped my sentiment from Party on with Evelin T Designs, and backed my shaker with yellow cardstock, and filled the inside with tiny 3mm clear sparkling sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Finished off by mounting on a green top folding cardbase!

Now - I have a few favorites from the last Color Challenge to feature! I know it was a bit of a challenging color combo, but I loved seeing all the creative takes on it!

First up - this lovely creation from Rosali! I love how she incorporated the challenge colors - and that heart looks like stained glass! Beautiful!!!

Next up, isn't this a fun card from Vinita Jane? I love the fun angle, layers, and how she used the colors in such an unexpected way! Awesome work!

And then there is this fun little card by Jane! What a fun take on the challenge colors! I love all the white space, and the cluster in the corner with all the elements! So very cute! 

 And last but not least - Maryam nailed it with this soft and pretty beauty! So lovely and dreamy - beautiful work!
