MFT Color Challenge 20

It's a lilacs and daffodils kind of MFT Color Challenge to inspire you! Can you smell the flowers?

This challenge features colors fit for a spring bouquet  Lavender Fields, Wild Wisteria, Lemon Chiffon, and Daffodil.

Create cards, scrapbook layouts, home decor, treat containers, mixed media, etc. using this color combination and be sure to link your project below for a chance at a My Favorite Things Gift Voucher worth up to $20.

This color combination might seem like a challenge, but your MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team knows how to make magic!

A friendly gnome from the You Gnome Me stamp set looks just right in these springy colors. Alice added in white as a neutral for just a touch of the color combination

Go bold like Erin Lee did with a heavy dose of Daffodil. I love how you can see Wild Wisteria on the inside and at the bottom of the card. And of course, Modern Blooms is a perfect fit for these colors.

Jill chose to keep the four colors tamed in a jaunty circle. The Lemon Chiffon card base gives this design a light and airy feeling. And those two hearts? Perfection.

A Sister to Me Card from Jill Dewey Hawkins featuring the True Friends stamp set and Stitched Circle Frames Die-namics

Miriam embraced all of the colors in this daring design. How COOL does the Quilt Square Cover-up Die-namics look when layered like this?

Another sweet and playful gnome is dressed up in our lavanders and yellow in Vera's design. This card is sure to bring a smile to the recipient's face!

Gnome One Else Card from Vera Wirianta Yates featuring the You Gnome Me stamp set

Veronica's card is testament to the fact that adding metallic gold is NEVER a bad thing. Her vintage take on the color combination evokes memories of grandma's house and simpler times – a true breath of fresh spring air.
