It is Monday….why are you posting the ColorLab Challenge??!! Well, after one year of color challenges it was time for an update. The ColorLab Challenge is becoming a monthly challenge posted on the 15th of each month. See this week’s challenge post for all the details!
Now to this week’s colors. Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede and a touch of More Mustard. These are inspired by the beautiful Spice Cake DSP from the new Holiday Mini. I am SOOOO happy I got this paper in my preorder!! Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz are so nice together and the Soft Suede is a great neutral to add. More Mustard adds the perfect pop of yellow!
When I looked closer at the colors, I immediately knew I wanted to use the new Hostess Set, Precious Butterflies. This is such a quick and easy set to use. I’m in love with the flower made of butterflies! I stamped off the little More Mustard butterfly to keep him in the same pale palette as the flower. I chose one of the patterns from Spice Cake DSP and added a Scallop Trim Border with a quick punch. I popped the image up on Dimensionals but it was still missing something. Ahhh, a Basic Pearl, of course!
You know (if you have spent any time reading my blog) that I am a huge fan of Baja Breeze but this Pool Party is kind of a summer version. The more I use it, the more I love it! Now you have a whole month to play the challenge so no excuses. I can’t wait to see what you make!
I have been working busily on cards for some upcoming classes and a Holiday Mini Blog Hop starting August 26th. You’ll get to see them eventually but I might not have much to post this week. If I can get all my required stamping done, I hope to have some time just to play some challenges. Thanks for stopping in today. I will see you again later in the week!

Absolutely gorgeous card!! Those colors are fabulous together! I love the scallop trim down the side, too!
Very pretty Jen!! I looked at that piece of DSP, but went with the other 🙂
This is really lovely. The colours, dsp and stamp set work really well together. You make such lovely cards and I am sorry I haven’t commented for a while.
What a pretty card! Love all those butterflies. Now I’m kicking myself that I didn’t get that dp!
Everything just goes so well together and makes it an absolutely gorgeous card. I always love your cards.
This is such a cool stamp set. Don’t make me need it, lol!
