Color challenges this week.

These two cards today were made for two different challenges at Splitcoast. The first is the color challenge CC220, so bashful pumpkins! I used the Fifth Avenue floral set, and the On Your Birthday set for the sentiment. The lilies in my yard are the same colors as these, so saffron and pumpkin. this card is also for the ways to use it challenge today, WT220 beautiful buttons. The main card is so saffron. The lilies are done on water color paper, and mounted on bashful blue DP. The ribbon is the so saffron from Sale-a-bration, the circle is punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch,  and the button is from Basic Grey.
This card was also made for the same two challenges at Splitcoast this week. Again I thought this color combo worked nicely with the Wild About you set ( see post a few days ago). The Washington apple designer paper too, was perfect, it made it really easy actually. I like to layer the animals in this set, especially the lion so that you can get his mane to be orange. The layers are mounted on dimensionals. The main card is so saffron, the layer is on pumpkin pie, and the stripe is from the Washington Apple DP. All of the buttons are Stampin'Up! as well, so saffron, bashful blue, and white from the latte collection. 

Thanks for looking!
