Welcome to Color Me Beautiful! Each week, we will post a beautiful color palette for you to try. We'll use the Stampin' Up! Color Coach as one of our guides for trendy and fresh color combinations. Use at least three of the Stampin' Up! colors on the palette in your design along with SU stamps. Remember, Stampin' Up's colors coordinate in card stock, ink, ribbons, buttons – Everything! The Color Team has come up with some designs of beautiful colors to get you in the spirit! We are so excited to visit your blog to see what You can create with our color palette! Since we're conquering the world one color combo at a time, our color team will each choose a “Color Explorer” for each challenge. One will be chosen “Color Conqueror.”

# 12 Ornamental Greens

What a lovely palette we have for you this week. Can't you just smell the evergreen and mistletoe? There's just nothing like the scent of fresh greens. Have you ever wondered through the woods searching  for the perfect tree to cut down? The fresh air and pine aroma is amazing! What a wonderful experience. Of course the last time my brother and I did that, we didn't saw straight and ended up having to tie the tree to the wall! My brother even looks like Chevy Chase:) When Daddy came home from his trip that year and saw the tree tied to the wall he just looked at us and smiled. Mom got artificial trees after that!

Challenge #10 Caffeine Tones

Brrrr it's cold outside and lucky you, you're sitting by a nice cozy fire with a beautiful quilt and your favorite flavor of espresso. There's music on the stereo and as you look out the window you see snowflakes softly falling blanketing the ground.
We invite you to sit by the fire and create using this palette.
