Colour Challenge Conniption

This week's Card Camp challenge was a tricky one for me... I almost had a conniption when I saw the colour swatch!  We had to work with a palette of lime green, turquoise and yellow, which are not colours I usually go for.  I much prefer browns, dusty pinks and greens.  Anyway, I dragged out all the inks, cardstock and patterned papers I had and was surprised to find quite a few items in the appropriate colours.  A bit of stamping, a bit of cutting, bow tying and layering and I had a card in all the right colours that hadn't actually caused me any physical harm... but I am retreating to my comfort zone for the rest of the day!
