Color Challenge - Santa Fe #1

I have a tendency to find four or five colors I love and ignore the other forty gorgeous colors available through Stampin' Up!. Well no more, says I! As a result of that declaration I've decided to do a weekly color challenge. Oh, and I'm not planning on doing these alone (hint, hint). :0)

This week's challenge comes from Santa Fe, New Mexico, where my sister recently got married. I took a ton of beautiful, color-rich pictures so it's likely this won't be the last time we have a Santa Fe Color Challenge.

Here's the picture I took of the sign for the Bed & Breakfast, Hacienda Dona Andrea de Santa Fe, where we stayed (most comfortable beds ever!) and the location of the ceremony (so picturesque!):

See all of those wonderful colors?!

Here's my result...and this was difficult for me. First of all, I wouldn't have put these four colors together, and I usually like to work with just three colors instead of four (yes, I can be kind of picky). But I'm so happy with how it turned out!

I used Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Peach Parfait Patterns Designer Series Paper, Pear Pizazz and Night of Navy. The stamp set, Watercolor Trio, is from the Summer Mini-Catalog (last day to order is August 31st). I've fallen in love with this stamp set - this one is actually my mom's, but I had to borrow it when it arrived here this afternoon. Now I'm convinced I need one of my own!

If you have questions or would like to order the supplies for this project, email me at or shop online here.

Now it's your turn! Email me your creations for this color challenge, and I'll post them next Wednesday. One lucky challenger will win a special treat.

Have a great day!
