A "You Pick" Hues to Use!

Hello sweet peeps and welcome to another color-infused Hues to Use Challenge! For this week's challenge, we decided to throw a little twist into the mix! After choosing this absolutely gorgeous photo Marcy snapped of a Hellebore in bloom, I honestly couldn't decide between that pale peach shade or that vibrant blue backdrop in the sky. So, I said -- You choose! Feeling like you want to create with the lush shade of peach? Do it! Wanting to pack a little more punch with a sky blue? Go for it! 

Just pair one of them with the two other colors in this week's challenge! Check it out folks! 

HOW TO PLAY: Easy, peasy lemon squeezie! Just use three of the four colors above to create and then... link up your creation below! We cannot wait to see how you mixed this one up! 

And sweet stamping friends, we are super blessed to have yet another guest with us today to kick off our challenge! This sweet woman has some mad skills when it comes to coloring so what better challenge to have her be the hostess than... a color challenge! Say "Hello" to.... 

"Hi, My name is Corinne, I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 30+ years, the most wonderful man, We have a gorgeous daughter, Cynthia, and 3 gorgeous grand-babies -- Elliana, Mason and Adaline -- that are all down in Florida. I have an amazing twin sister (Irene) along with 4 other siblings and of course my beautiful Mom. We live in Ohio and our beautiful winter is over for this year. Here comes the heat! Yes, I LOVE winter. I have been crafting for years, love all kinds of crafting. I love my Copic markers, making cards, altered art and scrapbooking.


For my card, I printed off the Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher Digital stamp set and colored it up with my Copic Markers. I then Fussy cut out the image so I could put it in front of this wonderful Tonic Deco Diamond die cut background. I wanted to add a touch of ribbon, so I found some beautiful matching sheer ribbon and made a bow at one end. Then I stamped Just for you from the Dahlia XL stamp set onto my creative basic Basic Stitched Flag using 2 layers from the set. Thought it was a perfect match for this card. I wanted to keep it all clean and simple so these gorgeous tulips really stand out. 

Thanks Corinne! I absolutely love how your amazing coloring POPS on that soft and elegant backdrop. Sigh... so pretty!
