CMCC #77- Going Tribal

Hello.  Today is a little bitter sweet for me as it is my last challenge with the fabulous Colour Me team!  I have enjoyed the ladies, challenges and creations immensely!  I hope to have another round with this DT some day in the future.    With that, onto my last challenge.

This is the poppin' and playful color combo we are using this week:


So I had a ton of fun with this color combo.  Again, my BasicGrey Grand Bazaar paper pack came in handy by having the exact colors I needed, including the Melon Mambo, Plum, and Tangerine.  Wahoo!  

Here is where the fun came in.  I used my MFT feather dies and Avery Elle chevron die to take these feathers to the next level.  I cut the bits of DP with the chevrons and diamonds and fit then right into the feathers for a fun and fancy pattern.  It feels very tribal to me, but with a modern flair.  I added extra bits from the Grand Bazaar collection as accents including the saying, "Life is what you make of it."  I added some melon colored twine from the Twinery and some bling from Freckled Fawn.  Honestly, it is a little out of my comfort zone, but is fun none the less.  Just another opportunity to stretch myself a bit and have fun.  So, I lived up to the sentiment I guess. :)



So with that, I implore you to live your life to the fullest, which will include visiting the Colour Me blog, all the DT members and then joining us for this challenge.  

Thanks for stopping and thank you again to the Colour Me team for such a great six months!

Katie, your inspiration cards as part of the this team have been stellar - and this one, your finale (sad face!) is yet more evidence of how incredibly talented you are! GORGEOUS feathers and yes...everything is better in pink! Also belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Hope you had a celebration-filled day, and wishing you joy, blessings and love for the year coming! I've fallen behind in my commenting (June was zany, and July is starting to look 'vaguely familiar' that way, too...for a little while, anyway), but I hope you know that I see ALL your cards in Feedly. See them, ooh and ahh over them, and love them! Aiming to smarten up and stay caught up!
Hugs~c
