Tropical Hibiscus with CTMH Extreme Happiness

Here is my second take on this week's Online Card Class color combination.  When I first looked at the palette I put together two different color swatches - one with colors I more commonly use and then one with shades of colors I don't use as often.  I wanted to push myself to experiment with a wider range of tones and wound up surprising myself!

This color combination was so unexpected when I started pulling this one together that I'm still looking at it in disbelief.  The light orange color is Taffy - one of the few colors I don't use very often as it always seems to be a hard pastel color to use (guess I'm just not a pastel girl - LOL).  Anyways, who would have thought that Taffy mixed so well with Tulip, Sunset, Key Lime and Ponderosa Pine?  Its like a day-glow tropical surprise!

Materials Used:
Paper:  Jingle Level 2, Taffy CS, Key Lime CS, Ponderosa Pine CS, White Daisy CS
Stamps:  Extreme Happiness
Inks:  Taffy, Sunset, Desert Sand, Creme Brulee, Ponderosa Pine
Other:  Key Lime Bigger Brads

Thanks for stopping by today!
