Today's Color Challenge is a fun one. I love chocolate, I prefer milk chocolate, and especially chocolate from Canada. I think it is creamier or something. The chocolate from the US sometimes has like a waxy taste. Although give me a Linder Truffle and oh man that is good stuff. I like to keep them in the refrigerator, try it next time you buy those. The little inner gooey stuff gets all hard, and when you eat it after it is cold, I swear you can taste it better.
I was looking around on the internet and I found this cute bedroom set and so I thought hey there is a great color combo, pretty easy too.
You have until Sunday September 13th at noon AZ time to do the challenge, upload a card to your blog, or Paper Craft Planet, or Splitcoast stampers, and link it in your comment here on this post. I will enter all the names into a hat and pick a winner for my card…it's all for fun, and I love color sketches, they are so easy. Wanna play?
Here is my card, I got the layout from a card in Card Maker Magazine. Good luck and have fun with the challenge.

Paper: Kraft, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor Paper, Nouvea Chic DSP

I noticed this when I got my cataog. Shouldn't the "chew chew" be "Choo Choo"?
Chew Chew looks like you should be eating something.
I love this colour combination. I redid my bathroom this year and used Brown and Blue. It is so calming. Cute, Cute card.

Cute card. But my question is where did the inspiration picture come from? I do hope it's a 'purchasing' web site and not a blog. I've been looking for something just like that for my spare bedroom. Please, oh please, oh please share where the pic came from. Thanks, Cathy

Here's my sample I hope I link it OK.
OK well that doesn't look right.
Well it's at SCS under Fresh Cuts. or Tracy Altemose.

Love the color combo! I get lots of great ideas from your blog. I think we are in the same extended stamping "family."
I am also happy to count myself amongst the Twilight fans out there! I've enjoyed your last 2 posts very much.
Here's my card:
