Chartreuse, gray, and lavender

Gray and lavender.........colors that I've shied away from for many years.......these were our colors for our (local) sorority at Grove City College back in the 70's, Theta Alpha Pi, and I wore them at least once a week for 3 1/2 years.   They were hard colors to wear for most of us, and thankfully at some point after I graduated, they changed the colors to burgundy and silver.   But I digress.......

The new challenge at CR84FN includes these colors plus chartreuse........here's the photo inspiration, really lovely, isn't it?


Here's my take on it:

CR84FN#48

supplies: grey cardstock, My Mind's Eye "Penny Lane" lavender and green  design papers from Hobby Lobby, Die-Namics rolled rose die, Sizzix Branch with Leaves die, Cutlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder, Hero Arts AR127 Script Messages, pearls colored with purple marker
