Tulip, Black and Buttercup - what can you do with these?

Thank you all for playing along with us last week and creating a card/gift for Dad...you know he appreciated it!

This week we are going for a color challenge and I know, for me, it really was a challenge! Our scheduled sponsor for this week had to drop out so I will be filling in and will have a prize for one lucky player but it's a mystery what the prize includes so you'll just have to play along and take your chances! Bwahahaha.....

Our colors this week are Black, Tulip and Buttercup (and of course, white or cream).


And start off our samples, our fabulous Guest DT for June, Dawn, is playing along with us this week and created this:


And from the rest of our great team we have:








What a variety! Feeling inspired? Then grab your color trio (if you don't have the exact colors, use something similar) and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Once you have your artwork posted, be sure to head back here and leave a link to the post before Sunday at 10:00 pm EST to be eligible for this week's mystery prize. Happy stamping!

Love this color challenge but it was hard to pick witch project to post. I love that Carol added some green. I soooo wanted to add green but I didn't.

Loved trying this. It was my first try at a color challenge - great fun! I look forward to more.

What a great challenge. I had already started forming an idea in my head and H2H gave me the perfect colours to make my special card. Thanks,

This was my first challenge! It was a very different colour combo for me - so I had fun doing it. I'm looking forward to playing again next week :o)

Loved the challenge ladies! These colors truly were a tough challenge for me, so I appreciate that you helped me step out of my comfort zone!

Had a hard time finding buttercup in my collection...thought I had some of everything LOL. Finally found some on the back of Boom-Di-Ada B&T :) Of course after seeing some of the gorgeous artwork, I nearly gave up anyway. So much talent.

I didn't see very many layouts so I decided to be a black sheep with my submission. Love it on a large scale as much as I love all the cards!
