July Color Challenge

Hello there!  If you're new to our challenges, welcome!  If you're a returning participant, we're glad to see you again!  No matter what's going on in your area, it's always the winter holiday season here at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. 

I'm Patricia, your hostess for the month of July, and this week I've come up with a color challenge.  I think of it as a "vintage traditional" color scheme:  

For color reference, Stampin' Up colors would be Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip.  Of course, you are never required to use only SU products for any of our challenges!  Simply use whatever you have that is closest to these colors.

Keep in mind that there should be no white, no black, no blues, no purples, no pinks, no light greens on your card... we only want to see the listed four warm, rich colors this week.  Since we realize many challenge participants enjoy adding embellishments to their cards, you may use a very small amount of metallic gold (such as cording, embossing powder, or a few brads) along with the four challenge colors.  However, in order to be considered for our weekly Top Five Honors, the four challenge colors must be the dominant colors used.

OK, enough chitter-chatter.  How about seeing what the design team did with these colors?



We're looking forward to seeing what you create!  Be sure to link your card below by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, July 19.

Please make sure to follow these rules when you play along with us here at 52CCT! :)

*We'd really appreciate it if you'd turn off word verification so that we can comment more easily! We know a lot of you do this for safety, but it takes a very long time to comment when verification is activated, and you may lose your comments from us... just sayin'. ;)
