"There are SO many different color combos
to play with, aren't there?
It wasn't so much the combination of colors here that struck me...

were stunning together.  Hope you have fun with it!"

What we do ask is that the colors that are in the challenge be OUR focal colors...when using additional colors, please limit them to neutrals. You are welcome to combine challenges, but we do ask that 1. They be used for the first time here 2. You mention in your post that you are playing (better yet, display our color challenge photo) and 3. OUR colors are the focus of the card.
