Today you are to make a card that features your LEAST favorite color. Don’t think too much—what comes to your mind first?—go with it. Of course, you may like some shades of that color or in certain circumstances. It needs to be the main color of the card, but you can add a splash of another color & you can include neutrals like white, kraft, black. For me it was easy—Orange is my least favorite color. Remember, you must include 1 Hero Arts stamp or digi image. Think you don’t have inks or papers in your least favorite color? Get creative—how about your kids crayons or images in junk mail or magazines? You can always add a Hero Arts greeting in another color!

Here’s how it works: Make a card, upload it to your photostream, tag it quickcard16, put it in this thread within 90 minutes. To add it to the thread you highlight the URL, control C, [ control V ] & a picture of your card will show. Please say what the color is since it can be hard to tell from a photo. You can add the description after the 90 minutes. Also remember to add it to the Hero Arts group so everyone will see it! I’ll be here to help. The main thing is—HAVE FUN!

Hero Arts is giving away a digi image & I will give away 2 little prize packages. I’ll tell you today’s “twist” at the end—suspense!--LOL

Orange card for Scramble by gg nurse (Greta)

Scramble second example by gg nurse (Greta)

First is the digi kit from Hero Arts. Hubby drew a name out of the basket & it is Rosemary D.--congrats! Flickr mail Tami to get your prize.

Orange & yellow were the "winning" colors, so for my first prize package the names of everyone (except Linda) who made a yellow or orange card were put into the basket & hubby drew Stampin Sue--congrats! Please flickr mail me your address & whether you want the ornament or stocking stamp package.

Now for the twist--hope I don't make any enemies--LOL! I thought it would be fun to have a non-stamper pick a winning card. As we all know--beauty is in the eye of the beholder & sometimes that's not a paper crafting expert! Hubby is very supportive of my craft, but has his own likes & dislikes--sometimes we agree & sometimes we differ! He loved his college art class & has an eye for color & design. He actually offered to help me with the challenge, so I said OK--you pick a winner! He looked at all the entries (except Linda & Lin) & I have to tell you, he had a hard time! In the end he narrowed it down to Sharon's card, saying "the words go with the butterfly--pleasing composition--not too busy but has life--everything ties together." I have your address, Sharon, so will get your prize in the mail next week.

If this was your first Hero Arts scramble, Flickr mail me your address & I'll send you a little something.

A huge thank you to everyone for playing in my scramble! I was really nervous, but it was fun! Loved seeing what everyone did & I'll be leaving comments soon! You've all inspired me!

Happy Memorial Day weekend to all my USA friends--we are blessed. And those of you in harms way of all the severe weather, be careful!

I forgot that Rosemary didn't want to be included for the prize, so names went back in the basket & this time hubby drew Janet--jintyoo7. Flickr mail Tami to get your digi kit--congrats!

Aw.. ORANGE is my NEW favorite color!! hm... this is hard, because there is no color that I don't like. So I'm going to try using the color that I used the least! Is that OK?

Hmmm, ok.....I'll be back later ; )
Sharon D. from Canada 7 years ago
Fun challenge, Greta! My least favourite is orange too! I'd better get on it!
If you looked at a group of toothbrushes or flowers & had to decide, what color would you eliminate first? I think that'd be your least favorite. Probably if you hardly ever use the color, it's your least favorite, so go for it, Virginia!
Rosemary D. 7 years ago
what a fun idea, greta! my least favorite color to craft with is orange, just like sharon... hardly ever do anything using that color. so... off i go to figure something out!

Here is my simple card, purple or eggplant is not one of my favorites, it is my daughters fav, but not mine, so this is what I went with, sorry no fancy bling or anything, under the weather today, best I could do.

Celebrate all day by Hannah Nicole F

This one is hard for me because I like most colors, but I really don't care for the dull shades.
Could not play in your challenge, was ok this am, went down hill, that is how my life is, I go with the flow, will be ok at some point, thanks.
Good job, Hannah! Dull purple, huh?! Certainly not a dull card! Thanks for playing!

I'm with you, is my least favorite color. Here's my card:
May Scramble by ima dz2 (Daria)
Just for the record, I agree with Hannah, I like most colors, and it was hard to decide which to go with, so I picked purple, deep purple, almost went with orange, but I do like it as well. Fun challenge Greta!!!
Well, using your least favorite color didn't bother you at all, Daria! Well designed birthday card you can be proud to send!
Here's my card - featuring a bright yellow. Thanks for the fun Scramble, Greta - please leave me out of the prize drawing. Now I'm off to shop with my sister who, thankfully, was at lunch with her hubby and a couple of their friends after flying into town for a couple days. She just got back and I said - done!!

jintyoo7(Janet) 7 years ago
Greta, like you I seldom use orange, it seems like it is a popular "least used" colour - LOL. You are to be congratulated, Greta on increasing its use today. Brilliant challenge - Thank you !!!!

Greta's 90 minute Scramble by jintyoo7(Janet)
Wow, Linda! I always include yellow as a color I'm not fond of, but I'd love to get this card! Beautifully done! So glad your guests "cooperated" & let you play--LOL! Tell your sister thanks from me & have fun shopping!
Here's mine. Like Virginia, I don't have a color that I dislike, but yellow is one that I don't use very often, at least not for the main, focal image. This was so fun! Thank you, Greta!

I have the same problem with orange and yellow Greta. but I managed something this time! Mainly thanks to the cheerful flowervine I think!
Well done, Janet! The punched edge makes for a lovely card--even in orange--LOL! I wondered how many different colors would be involved in this. So far we have orange, purple, bright yellow.

My least favorite/ used colors are gray and yellow. The color combo actually work together. Here's the result!

Here's my terribly photographed picture. It's lovely in person :) I can't wait for more than one sunny day in a row.

Thanks for the challenge, Greta. I love to wear orange, but rarely use it when it's not Halloween or Thanksgiving. The stamp was stamped in Versamark.

Here is my 2nd card. Thanks so much Greta for hosting this. AS ALWAYS this is SOOOOO MUCH fun!

I have a question - and this applies to me...not sure if you all can relate, but for seems like I can come up with pretty nice card when I am under this 90 min time constraint. When it comes to a challenge and I have like 2 mojo goes on vacation...LOL!!!

In any case, thanks again Greta!

Oh my goodness--you guys are good! Maybe I do like orange, Rosemary! Darling gray card, Suenj99! Perfect use of lime green vegasgal! Red & gold--beautiful--& not a Christmas card, Lin!

Wowzer Martha! I do like yellow after all because I love your yellow card!

I'll also look in the group for any others posted there in time. Back soon everyone!

Beautiful cards everyone!!!
Rachelle--you're in for the prizes I'm giving. Perfect card to make using orange!
Love everyone's cards! Wonderful creativity!

Thanks so much, Greta! You were a perfect host!

I'll be commenting on everyone's cards later. . .need to go get downstairs. Looks like a tornado warning will be issued soon in my area. . . .
Thanks Greta! That is so sweet of you. The colors are an yellowy/gold and a burnt orangy brown thing. I don't really care for either of those colors nor do I care for southwest style too much.

Oh no, Barb - praying that the storms will pass quickly and without any tornadoes!

Just wanted you to know that I am extremely sorry for not playing like I had planned Greta! I had a miagraine headache and spent most of my time in bed. I will check out all your cards tomorrow.
Congrats to the winners - again, fun Scramble Greta! My sister and I went shopping after I uploaded my card, then she, BIL and I went out of dinner with some family and drove around the neighborhood where they used to live. Fun evening. So now I'm able to finish commenting on all the beautiful cards!

Glad the storms didn't get you, Barb - my dad called to be sure we were taking cover - we were out shopping and it was just raining a bit up here! Sorry you weren't feeling well, Dana!

It's been some time since I've had a chance to play but I always find time to check in and glance - This looked to be such a fun challenge, Greta! All of these cards are amazing! I can't believe how many beautiful cards came out of everyones least favorites....beautiful.

Congratulations to you all!

had to go out of town for a graduation yesterday. so sorry to have missed the scramble. Looks like fun!
I missed yesterday's challenge, I was at a scrapbooking all day crop. I made cards, but I was filling in for a friend who couldn't make it. Sounds like fun! Orange is my least favourite colour too, I may just have to make a card in that colour to stretch me a bit.. and no, I will NOT do pumpkins.
I forgot about the scramble yesterday! So sorry I missed out on all the fun. These cards are stunning and I love your theme, Greta! Congrats to the winners!
