Embellish Color Challenge Parties

Hello again my friends! This is my second post today. In case you missed it, please scroll down to see my first post of the day.

You guessed it, it's time for another Embellish Magazine Color Challenge!!! What a fun one we have for you this time around. It's party time!...
That's right, so put your party hats on and use the colors pictured above to come up with a project perfect for a party! So, that means party favors, invitations, gift tags, gift bags and all kinds of party decor. This weeks sponsor is DeNami Design. There stamps make mixing and matching, to create your own design, a cinch!

Here's a simple and easily mass produced birthday party ensemble I came up with for the challenge...
The coordinating pattern papers were stamped using two of the images from the Party Time Stamp Set, stamped in True Black onto Pure Poppy cardstock.
Here is a better shot of the window invite. I created this look by first adhering the stamped Pure Poppy pattern paper to the kraft card base. Then punching the circle and carefully stamping the An Invitation Circle and party hat with in, onto the panel inside. Finished it off with a few perfectly placed buttons (which are also from DeNami Design) and colored the red onto the party hat.
This little wrapped gift box makes the prefect packaging for either a party favor or a birthday gift. To create a perfect match to the card, wrap the contents/gift in kraft butcher paper to fill the box and to coordinate with the kraft card base of the invite. Or simply fill with candy or treats of your choice. I thought Red Vines licorice or Twislers would create the perfect match as well.

So, now it's your turn to get crafty! Find the prize info and link your creations over at the Embellish Magazine blog.

Also, don't forget that the newest Embellish Magazine Publication Call is out. While you've got your supplies out for the latest challenge, why not create a few extra projects (using the call colors of course) to submit and have a chance at getting published!

Can't wait to see what you all create!
