FFC05 - Colour Challenge

We're back with another Festive Friday challenge! Truly, I am sure our whole team would agree that every week the entries get better and better. And it's all but impossible for us to narrow our shout outs and winners down, but we did finally manage. So, let's get to it!

Shout Outs!

We loved how Tanis used beautiful, bright colours to string up her festive string of lights, and the glossy accents over top make for the perfect finishing touch!

Tenia created this stunning creation using some really classic elements - and no stamps! Can you believe it?

Jill created this awesome card, inspired by the actual graphic we used in last week's post. How clever!

And our Winner!

Lynn created this stunning card using various patterned papers to create her quilt-inspired panel. Beautiful!

And now, onto our new challenge for the next couple of weeks! This week, we have another colour challenge for you:

Aren't they gorgeous together? Here is what our amazing team came up with for this week:





And this week, we are joined by the FABULOUS Maureen Plut from Buttons & Bling!

I'm a St. Patrick's Day baby, the youngest of 6 children (5 girls, 1 boy)and live in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada, just like Meredith!  When I'm not in the studio, I'm a Grade One and Two teacher to enthusiastic 6 and 7 year olds, new wife to Tony and proud mom to Jake who is finishing his Engineering Degree.

And here is Maureen's *stunning* card:

Is that beautiful, or what?

Wow, thanks so much for the shout out! There were so many wonderful projects. Congrats to the other picks. Feeling inspired and grateful that I'll have a day at home on Monday and will hopefully get to play in my stamping zone and get going on the new challenge!

Meridith, I was on vacation and missed the last challenge, but was so sad to hear about your mom. My mom passed away almost 7 years ago and I still miss her so much. My prayers are with you!

Thank you so much for another fun challenge...this blog is a fantastic idea and so glad you have it for us!
