Clearly Inspired Challenge # 11 -- Color Challenge -- This one made TOP 5!

YAY! It's Friday and not only is it Friday, but it is the best kind of Friday, CIC Friday!  Yup, it is time once again for the Clearly Inspired Challenge at ClearlyiStamp.  This time,it's a color challenge. And not any ordinary color challenge at that. This week the color challenge features colors from the brand new paper, ribbon and marker line from Clear Dollar Stamps called Clearly Coordinating. Their first collection is called "Summer Fun" and it totally lives up to its name! So bright and cheery! Ok, so back to this week's color choices!
Bee Pollen, Lime Juice and Cherry Go Round.
I had alot of fun working with these colors! I colored the images first, assembled them and then worked on my layout. I was lucky to find this lone sheet of dp from the material girl collection that matched so perfectly. Not only the colors, but the flower's shape as well.

Oh that dp DOES match perfectly! What a beautiful card, Christi. I thought very seriously about using this set for the challenge as well. . .because it just screams these colors to me. Your coloring is so fantastic, and I love the Nestie you used. Very gorgeous card ;D
