Welcome to a Brand New UDI Feature -- Our Weekly Color Challenge!




Hello everyone and welcome to the very first Color Challenge on Utah Divas International! We hope you'll be inspired by the luscious colors and beautiful inspirational artwork provided by our Design Team each week. And we hope you'll play along, create your own wonderful projects using our weekly color combinations, and come back to give us a link so we can see your creations! Spread the word ... invite your friends ... come and have fun with beautiful color!


As you can see, this week's challenge was inspired by this absolutely gorgeous and rich looking bedding that I found at Nieman Marcus online. Isn't it wonderful! The colors are so rich and luxurious and I was instantly inspired to use them as this week's UDI Color Challenge. Now remember, this is a color challenge. We provide the inspiration photograph so that you can see how inspiration is found everywhere. You don't need to try and create the look or even the feel of this gorgeous bedding. But you do need to use this week's colors ...Crumb Cake, Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz and Pretty in Pink! The rules are easy. You can add either Whisper White or Very Vanilla to the mix but you must use all the colors in the challenge.


You'll find great inspiration in the photos below created by our Design Team! You can see how different they all are and yet all use the same colors. By clicking on each DT member's name, you can go directly to their blog to find out more about how they created their beautiful projects and the products they used. And while you're there, you might want to share a little love by leaving them a quick comment.


And at the very bottom of the post, you'll find an opportunity to share your own creation by providing a link. We do hope you'll play along with us. And we hope that you are inspired by this week's Color Challenge!
