Embrace Life.....

Good Morning and Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend....I'm enjoying an extra day off from school duty although I do have a class today. Fun, fun!!!

This card was for a color challenge to use tempting turquoise, gable green and kraft. These colors freaked me out but as I got the layout together, I threw in a bit of black and was quite pleased with the final result. Don't you just love a challenge that makes you step outside your comfort zone?!!

Well, I'm off to start my day and get ready for my girls to show up. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!
TTFN,
Hugs,

  10. This really is a great color combo. I don't usually use the bold brights but they look so good when toned down with the kraft.
