MFT Color Challenge #39

It's time for a new Color Challenge at My Favorite Things.
Here's the color palette for Challenge #39.

When I saw that Cement Gray was one of the colors, I immediately thought of elephants,
and there's nothing cuter than Birdie Brown's Adorable Elephants.

I prepared a panel by embossing the Jumbo Dot Cover Up on Smooth White
card stock. Two ellies were stamped with MFT's Steel Grey Hybrid Ink and
colored with Copic markers, then die cut with the matching dies.

I also colored three balloons with Copics and die cut them with the matching dies.
The sentiment was white embossed on a strip of Cement Gray card stock,
and all the pieces were adhered to the panel. The panel was then adhered
to a Smooth White card base.

Can you see how the Copic colors that I chose for the balloons match the
challenge colors? Want to know a little secret? I referred to a Copic Color Match
Chart found here, in the MFT Printable Resources Color Chart folder.

It shows you Copic colors that match pretty darn close to MFT's ink and
card stock colors so that if you have Copics but not all of the inks or card stock
colors, you can still join the Color Challenges. Pretty neat, huh?
