PKS Challenge #35

So here's the sketch for this week's challenge:


And here are the colors:


I have to say in the world of colors, probably my least favorite are teal and purple (oops sorry, orchid).  I don't wear these colors, I don't generally dress my children in these colors, I don't decorate with these colors, and they certainly aren't my "go to" colors when it comes to papercrafting.  I do, however, really like apricot.  And since I happened to have teal and orchid in some of my stacks, I thought I'd might as well give it a try.  Surprise, surprise, I really like how it turned out.  For this card I resurrected a stamp set from my Stampin' Up! demo days called Pretty Princess.  I hope you like it!

Isn't it amazing how hard some of these color challenges are? Then I love it when I'm pleasantly surprised with the results! I guess you know it was a good challenge when that happens, and I'm so happy you could join us for the PKS challenge this week! Your card is wonderful!

Hugs,
