Colour Create Challenge

Just adding this in by the skin of my teeth, I think. Colours for this week are Peach and aqua - not two colours I would normally use and looking at other entries, alot of crafters seem to think the same! Having said that, I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed using the colours so it just goes to show it's good to step out of your comfort zone!! Really stretching the optional hand made flower element, does my background flower cut out of a sheet of paper count? Hhmmmmm! Anyway, thanks for looking and I'd be delighted to know your thoughts!

So glad you enjoyed using the colours even though they were out of your comfort zone, and look at this little beauty you made! Lots of us were a bit scared of these colours but you have certainly done them justice. Well done! Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
