Challenge #51 -- Pink, Turquoise, Gable Green

This one was kind of fun, but I think if I had my "druthers," I'd have changed the turquoise to orange maybe. The pink and "blue" together always reminds me of nursery colors and as a result, I always try to avoid them together....in any shade!

However, I did manage....and now that it is done, it doesn't look too babyish. LOL I suddenly realized when it was finished that the same background stamp was used last week....for a completely different look, don't you think?!! The little "Thank You" stamp is a favorite and it will be missed when it leaves the catalog in August....it's from the Level 1 Hostess set, For a Friend. Isn't it fun with the felt flower from Flower Fusion over top?

I love those scallops poking out Barb!

No worries that you mixed up the greens...I almost used Taken With Teal instead of the Turquoise. - It looks great anyway and I love the simple little flower image you used. Sweet.
