H2H Challenges (From Your Heart to Ours): Favorite Color Combo

What's your favorite color combo? We'd love for you to share it with us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges! To get you started, the Design Team is sharing their favorite color combos with you. Be sure to visit the H2H blog to see the variety (and this month's prize packages)!

This challenge actually turned out to be a hard one for me, because I love color, especially on the cooler side of the color wheel. I finally selected one of my favorite color combos: Lagoon and Chocolate. (Scroll down for another project featuring similar colors.)

To create the flower on the left, I punched a 2" scalloped circle of both Lagoon cardstock and (retired) Magnifique B&T paper. I edged the cardstock with Lagoon ink and then scrunched up the B&T circle. I was able to push it in on itself a bit as a smooshed it, so that it is why it looks smaller than the base circle.

I totally stole the button wheel idea from the talented Amy Moore, an active H2H participant, and then repeated the element in the flower. Hopefully the polka dots and circles aren't too much for you!

Now, click, walk, run, or wheel on over to the H2H Challenge blog to check out our Design Team's favorite color combos, meet this month's Guest Designer Jane Haas, and find out this month's fabulous prizes from Heather Hunt and Kelly Jo Ratcliff. Thanks to everyone who participates in H2H in any way. We couldn't do it without you!

Happy Labor Day!

Supplies from CTMH: Pair-A-Phrase stamp set; Wonderland and Magnifique (retired) paper packs; Lagoon and Chocolate ink; blending pen; 2" scalloped circle punch; blue sparkles; wooden buttons; Chocolate ribbon

Thank you for visiting my blog! We did use similar colors on our
H2H project. I saw the card you made with the owl stamp also, very nice coloring! I can't color, so I stamp on color paper & cut out
