Your MFT Challenge & Inspiration Team is here again with six inspiring cards using this color palette. Let's see what has been going on in their creative minds.

Alice created a soft and gorgeous watercolor background with the colors of Color Challenge 28. It serves as a wonderful way to showcase the stamps and Die-namics from the Count the Stars series. The perfectly placed sequins and vellum stars add to this muted pastel design.

Erin Lee adds a lot of Tropical Teal for a more saturated look. Her use of the Blissful Blooms stamp set and the angled bottom corner make for an eye-catching design.

Jill added Kraft as a neutral for a very different look to this color combination. Her striking Monogram M Card incorporates all four of the colors in a dizzying array of inlaid die cutting. The Scribble Roses Overlay Die-namics in Tropical Teal with a titch of stitching is the perfect final touch.

Miriam played with the Fishnet stencil to create her pretty background, and her bold balloons from the Blueprints 26 Die-namics make quite a statement on top of it. She chose black (a neutral) to make her sentiment pop.

Vera used repetition and lined up four cutie pie bunnies from the Somebunny stamp set. The addition of the patterned paper from the Dots & Stripes Fresh Paper Pack adds the right amount of weight to the bottom of her design.

Veronica crafted up a gorgeous bouquet of flowers with this soft color combination using the Watercolor Flowers stamp set and Die-namics. The Pierced Fancy Flourish Die-namics adds an extra dose of pretty to her design.
