Heart 2 Heart Challenge #1 - Color Challenge

We are kicking off our challenges with a color challenge and wait until you see all of the awesome samples the DT came up with!

Before I get to the challenge though, I want to thank Juli Clark for being this week's awesome sponsor! Juli will be awarding one player the following prize package:















What a great package of goodies! Be sure to stop by and leave Juli some love and check out her artwork - she's playing along with this week's challenge too! You can visit her blog at The Stamp Teacher. Thank you Juli!


Here are the colors we are working with this week:


If you don't have these exact colors, that's ok - use something close! Here is the artwork created by the DT - prepare to be impressed!

See what I mean? Awesomeness!! Be sure to visit each member's blog to find out more about their specific project.

We hope you want to play along!! Work with our colors of the week and create an awesome project. The complete guidelines can be seen over in the sidebar. Remember this is a Close To My Heart based challenge blog so your project should include a majority of CTMH products. Upload your project to your blog or another online gallery and then come back here and leave a link to your project in Mister Linky below. The deadline to enter is Sunday at 10 pm EST. The Design Team will be looking through all of the entries and will be choosing our very first Friday Five - it could be you! Juli's prize package will also go to one lucky player so there's a lot of great reasons to play along!!

Thanks for joining us and have fun!

Oops, that should say "Thanks for the challenge". Don't know why it didn't show up. Must have gotten ahead of myself.

This was a tough challenge for me, it's out of my colour combo comfort zone, but that's good, it stretches my creativeness, and that's why I'm gonna love H2H Challenges!!!

Thanks for starting this site.
