Hi everyone!  It's time for another SwirlyHues challenge.  Our inaugural challenge went soooooo well.  We loved the entries and the techniques that everyone used from our tutorial section.  You still have a few hours to submit a project for our first contest.  You have until midnight eastern standard time tonight! Click HERE to go to our first challenge. We will be posting the 1st and 2nd place winners on the 13th so stay tuned to see if you won!!!

Design Team member extraordinaire, Robin Schelin, is your hostess for this month's challenge.  She picked some fabulous colors for you, and our kit subscribers will find these colors in our card stock add-on for October's kit!  Woo Hoo.

Here is this month's storyboard.

RGB Values: 
1. Yellow-Orange / R: 237, G:157, B:6
2. Blue /  R: 0, G: 68, B: 100
3. Greyish-Tan /  R: 180, G: 161, B: 128

Here is Robin's gorgeous example:

The Rules:

1)  Must stick to the hues provided.  You may add black or white, but it can NOT be more than 5% of your total page and can NOT be a main element.
2)  You must interpret the sketch provided.
3)  Now for the Swirly-fying element – you MUST use one of our tutorials on your page.  Here is a LINK to our tutorials.  You can choose anything your beautiful, creative heart desires.
4) Create a post on your blog for your SwirlyHues entry.
