My favorite color combo - A CHALLENGE for YOU!!


Well, as the recipient of this card could tell you ;) I LOVE the color combo of Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, with accents of Really Rust (you should see my living room - he he he).  So, I had this card in my head and finally got it on some Card Stock!!!  Of course, I don't know of any cone-flowers that come in this color combo, but I don't care - I like it!  I did add some Summer Sun for the pollen that is usually on the outer edge of the middle of the cone-flowers, but that's not part of my "favorite" color combo. 

I would love to see your creations if you use this color combo - so leave a link in the comments for me!!

Hope you like the card!
