Challenge #32 - Color Palette Challenge

A very happy Monday everyone!  Charissa here today with our 32nd challenge.  This week I am challenging you to use a color palette inspired by this paper from Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm.

The paper includes navy, coral, and cream with touches of yellow, pink, and green.  So rifle through your stash and see what papers, mists, inks, and embellishments you can find in this color scheme and join us in this challenge.  Our fantastic DT members have created some stunning projects to get your creative juices flowing.

I love the navy ink splatter on Amber's card and how she combined the subtlety of the cream heart with the pop of the coral hello and flower!

Heather's card is so pretty!  The coral flowers really stand out against the navy team up and the embossed cream cardstock brings subtle elegance to the card.

Using the navy as the base for this card really makes is pop and makes the softer colors of the banner strips really shine.  I also adore the addition of the sequins in the supporting colors of the color palette!

With its deep navy background, Charity's laying is simply stunning!  The coral and cream really make a statement against the darker background paper and the little pops of yellow give just enough extra detail and interest!

Sheryl's layout is so pretty and the photos work perfectly with the color scheme with their own coral, navy, and yellow tones in the sunset.  Again, the deep navy background really allows the lighter colors (and the photos!) to really pop off the page!

Erica created an awesome trio of cards using the navy as a pop color and map prints in the coral and grey!  I love how bold the cards are!

This week I made my Project Life spread using the inspiration as my title card and building from there with the color scheme.  I actually pulled many of these papers from Lucky Charm, along with embellishments.  The colors really made the spread cohesive, colorful, and happy!

Lots of amazing projects this week!  I hope that you will be inspired by our inspiration patterned paper and will join us in this week's challenge!  Just a reminder that you will have until 11:59 MDT on June 1st to link up your project to us to be entered in this drawing.

Now for the winner of our Doodling Challenge - Challenge #31!
