Today I’m a part of the Color Challenge with Brandy Cox my Leader, she challenged us to use Melon Mambo, Garden Green, Coastal Cobana, and Whisper White. Very pretty colors if you ask me, I was excited to try this color combination. Honestly today I scrambled at the last minute to make this card, I’ve been sick with a Severe cold all week; so I hope you like this card as much as I do. I made this card using the Beauty Abounds Bundle from the Occasions Catalog 2019.
