Crazy 4 Challenges- Silke's Color Challenge

So, before I start my post, I just want to say a big 'ol OOPSIE!! I totally forgot that Verve was our sponsor when I made my card, and I was so wrapped up in making my teaser's for this month's My Favorite Things release, that I dropped the ball!! I promise to make up for it for the rest of the month, honest!!

Anywho, today is Saturday(if you are all EST and stuff), so it is time for another Crazy 4 Challenges challenge!! This month, Silke is our hostess with the mostest, and she has one of the most challenging color challenges I have ever participated in.....Saffron, Kraft, Black, Wasabi, and Pumpkin Pie. I had to sub Fossil for my Kraft, and Orange Fizz for my Pumpkin, but it works!! Today is also day one of this month's My Favorite Things teasers!! Wahoo!! Kim will have a full list of DT members who are peeking on her blog at 11am EST, so be sure to head over there so you don't miss out!! Today, we are showing you the new Polka Dot Greetings and Frame Die-namics, along with Clearly Sentimental About Books. I was still in Halloween mode, so I took the Polka Dot Greetings set, this enormous color challenge, and an old MFT set, and made it work Tim Gunn style!!

Also, there is a prize hidden on one of the designer's blog posts. As you make your way through the Teaser Time posts, simply leave a comment on each blog, for your chance to win one of the Brand Spankin' New stamp sets being released on October 6th. A winner will be chosen from the comments on the pre-selected blog before tomorrow's teaser list goes live, and will be posted on Kim's blog HERE. Be sure to check tomorrow to see if YOU are the winner. You can play along each day for your chance to win. We will be giving away TEN new stamp sets this week! As always, you can find the master list of participating designers HERE on Kim's blog.

For my card, as I said above, I used the new Polka Dot Greetings set. I used the matching Polka Dot Greetings Frame Die-namic,and cut out my sentiment and frame with that. It was stamped on Fossil with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then colored the Polka Dot Frame in with my Copics...even the black...crazy, right? This is the ONLY place I used saffron, so be sure to look closely, LOL!! I paired it with an old Who's That Girl set, Trick or Treat. I stamped my pumpkin on an MFT panel, then colored it and cut it out. My ribbon is from Michael's. and my DP is from the Echo Park Happy Halloween pack.


Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out the C4C blog for more details on this challenge, Kim's blog for all the other designer's teasing you today, and of course, my crazies!!
