The number 3 card was Sankari, Congratulations! Here is the winning card!
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and I will mail your card to you. This was fun, watch for a new Color Challenge every Monday.
A lot of times one of the questions people ask me is "where do you get your inspiration?" and I admit that most of the time my fellow Demonstrators are my best inspiration. Some of the ideas that come out of your heads amazes me…but today while I was shopping with Eric, I saw this and I heard music…well actually I think it was the speaker person lady saying that clean up was needed in aisle 3, but still I knew I wanted it and what I was going to do with it.
Ta!Da! Isn't this the most beautiful kleenex box you have seen in your entire life? I mean I want to encase it in plastic so it does not get ruined, it like totally matches my studio. You hear the music now too don't you?
So anyway today is my first color challenge…I don't think I have done a color challenge of my own before. I don't know how to be all fancy to show each individual color and stuff, so this will have to do….wait look!!!!
OMG! I have the best stamping friends ever…THE…BEST! Look what my sweetie pie Sankari made me, she's my gal pal from Paper Craft Planet..now it looks all official and stuff…OMG! Love it Sankari..sending hugs and love to you!
This is what I did with it, and just realized that I forgot to use bashful blue…oopsie…hey that's ok. It's all for fun. Anyway, you have till noon AZ time on Friday, August 28 to do the color challenge, and make a comment to this post and link to your blog or your gallery so I can check out your project. Then I will put everyone's name in a hat that participates, and I will pick a winner…what do you win? Well nothing super terrific, but I'll send you this card…how is that?
Stamp Set: Fifth Avenue Floral, Branch Out, Kind & Caring Thoughts, Friends 24-7
Paper: Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Whisper White Craft, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Basic Black, Close to Cocoa Classic

Jacqui Lines says
And that's a damn fine card to win at that!! I'll see if I can find some time to do the challenge! I like it when something not stamping related inspires you to do a card or a project!
The one colour challenge I hosted was inspired by the advertisement for a kind of perfume in the AVON catalogue!
I'll have to admit, since Stampin' Up came into my life, I relate everything I see to see colors we have. You did a fabulous job with reproducing the Kleenex box colors and design on the card! Love it 🙂
