Is that ME?

I know this is so not my style, but I love to try something new once in a while.
I am using the color palette from



Not just the card I made is not my style, even the color is a challenge to me, LOL!
Kirsty, get out of those purple and pink, ribbons and trims will you? : )


it was a cloudy and windy day at Vegas yesterday, I had to moved my card around to find a spot for better natural light, that is really rare in Vegas, we have lovely sunny day almost every single day! I really should be thankful!


this picture is slightly darker in shade..


alright, this is all I have for picture today, bad photo day!

Your card is just lovely. I hear ya when it comes to staying in your comfort zone. I have a hard time challenging myself with more than 2 different colours so I tend to go towards monochromatic combos. I just want you to know that your card for this colour challenge turned out beautifully! Oh by the way ... I was in Vegas for my honeymoon last August, I loved the weather, much better than cold snowy days here in Toronto!
