cQc #233 & C4C #227 ~ Thanks!

Hi there! Ready for a new ColourQ challenge! I must admit this was a difficult group of colors for me. I've never been a fan of teal or coral...put them in the same challenge and I was a bit rattled LOL!! So I decided the easiest way to approach this would be to follow a sketch. Just so happens that Crazy 4 Challenges had a great one ready and waiting!



I focused on the green using some of my PPPS celery twill ribbon, love this stuff!! I pushed the teal (Island Indigo) to the background and brought a little bit of it to the front of my card in the form of sparkly Rhinestones from DeNami Design. Just a wee bit of coral works for me. And to really calm my rattled nerves, I used my sweet polka dot embossing folder!!! Phew...done *wink*


Hope you have a splendid day 
and find time to play along with us at the ColourQ this week. ~Lisa

You worked it beautifully! I can do teal and coral...it's the green in this group that would have thrown me off.

So so pretty Lisa, this turned out perfect!

You went a little out of your comfort zone, Lisa, and scored! Your card was my favorite of the DT examples, and I've saved it to my inspiration file! :-)

Lisa, this is just beautiful. You would never know from looking at your card that you had trouble working with any colors.
