CCCB initial color challenge

City Crafter Challenge Blog has an interesting challenge. It is an initial color challenge. That means color combo where each of the 4 colors starts with the same letter as the blog name. (CCCB) The colors are Cream, Coral, Chartreuse, and Blue. It makes a really fun color palette. I don't normally use a lot of coral or oranges. I have to admit, I need to start incuding it in more projects.

( I promise the cream is really more cream than white in person :)

I used my "open rose" file again for this card. I also cut the "pretty flowers" in cream and inked the edges with Faded Jeans DI. The leaves are my same old files, but the mat is new. I own a Fiskers edge punch that looks like this but it broke a while back. I like the punch so much that I kept trying to use it even though it was broken and kinda' a hassle. Well I finally decided to make a cut file with that trim on the edge of a mat. Hope you like it.

Pretty flower: SVG    SCAL (the Branch and leaves are included in this scut file)

Fancy shell scalloped mat: SVG   SCAL

Please look at some of my older posts to get the SVG of the leaves.
