I have to admit that I really like the idea of doing a color challenge. Its even more fun when the challenge colors coincide with my yet to be tapped Cocoa Daisy April 2013 “forecast” kit. So that is what I encountered for Challenge #183 over at Play Date Cafe which post weekly color combinations. Their challenge rules are pretty simple: Just follow the COLOR COMBINATION as closely as possible making those colors the FOCUS of your creation.
This layout required some maneuvering thinking on my parts, the Cocoa Daisy kit came with lots of yellow and green but I threw in the navy with some nice Core’dinations cardstock and some navy inking on the hearts.
