Make The Card Challenge - Color Combo

Welcome back friends!

It's time for a new challenge over on  Make The Cards Challenge
Today we are having a color challenge.  



I've used these three colors two different ways on today's creation.  

First I began by creating my background panel using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress inks.  I've used 'Fossilized Amber, Rustic Wilderness and Faded Jeans'.

Next, I came up with this geometric design while laying in bed one night trying to fall asleep LOL.  For the three different colors I've used three different shapes.


YELLOW -  Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Circles

 BLUE - Tutti Designs Stitched Hexagons

 For the banner I've used Sue Wilson Stitched Flags (CED4317) and inked the edges with the same three colors.  The stamp set I've used was the Hero Arts January Kit.  I've popped up the sentiment banner and the bees using 3d pop dots.

OH ... and did you notice something missing from the photo above?  After I had taken the original photos I decided it needed a little something more so I went to my Nuvo Crystal Drops and picked coordinating colors and added them here and there (check photo at top of post).
