Favorite Colors

This week at the Creative Knockouts, we have a challenge that is sure to please!  Use your favorite color combo on your project this week!  What colors get your creative juices flowing?  Like most people, my favorite color combo depends on the project.  For a little girl's project I love brown and pink.  Blue and brown are a favorite go-to for a little boy.  At Christmas, I tend toward burgundy and artichoke or pink and burgundy.  My favorite season of the year is fall and I absolutely love the colors especially the golden yellows and rusty reds.  It is one thing I really miss about living farther north.

This week I used Autumn from Imagine That.  It was a little difficult to think about a fall card when the air was so heavy and humid outside!  She and her furry friend were colored with Copic markers and I ended up using the Silhouette to cut her out because the one leaf ended up outside of the circle die.  This digi also comes with several sentiments.  I think I may use the sentiment "Piles of Smiles", but I haven't made up my mind yet.  I always wait to see what I am going to use the card for before adding a sentiment.

Our sponsor this week is, of course, Imagine That.  You have a chance to win a prize of a $10 gift certificate to the shop.  Get creating so you can get to shopping!  Click the badge below to take a look at all of the great digis on offer.

I hope you decide to join us this week!
