OCC Challenge - Color Challenge!!!

Hey you all!!!

Loretta is still going strong on hosting the OCC Challenges this month !!! Today she is challenging us to use the *new Stampin' Up In-Colors*. I don't know about you, but I really like these new colors :)!!!

For this card I used Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay.

I combined this Color Challenge with the IC194 - Pyones Designer Gift Store. I used the *butterfly* images as my inspiration!!!!

The layout is from the fabulous Mojo Sketch 100 - Thursday. I also added the cute challenge idea from Sharon Johnson's ssnotime101 - Let's Polka.

The Stamp Set I used is Great Friend. The sentiment is from the Hostess Level III Set - Kind & Caring Thoughts.

I dressed the card up by adding some scoring, the Silver Pearls and the matching Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Ribbon. The BG DP is from the Thoroughly Modern Collection.

All the happy colors for the IC194 - Pylones site put me in the mood to make one more card!!!

I couldn't help it..... I had to use the Razzleberry Lemonade DP (this DP makes me happy :) too!!!) I added the new In-Colors Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo.

The flower image is from the beautiful There She Goes - Bloom Set.

My card was dressed up with some piercing, the Crushed Curry Polka-Dot Ribbon, Styled Silver Ribbon Slider and some Silver Pearls.

Great cards, Silke - I JUST got Great Friend and the Razzleberry Lemonade paper yesterday, so these are great inspiration! Have a great weekend!

Man, that Robin is an early bird, leaving her comment above!!
I love your cards -- Somehow I knew you would be using purple. Love the double white layer on your first card - really pops. Both cards are SUPER Fab! But I would not expect anything less!!!

Oh I wish I could play! I don't have any of the new colors yet, but should by next week!

Simply wonderful and fresh cards, Silke! A delight to look at always!
