Guest Designer for Playing In Paradise Challenge 68

Hi!

I was fortunate enough to win a Playing in Paradise challenge, and was asked to be a guest designer. This week comes with a color challenge.

Here is my card:
I started with an aqua card base and applied my pieced papers. A green zig zag border was added to the center.  A length of brown satin ribbon was added to the left side of the card front pleating the top finishing off with some twine, button and a yellow rose for a decorative touch. 
An oval nestie was cut and some fun decorative tape was added down the center. The typewriter image is from Wilson Designs Ride Away with Me which was stamped in Vintage Sepia on Kraft Cardstock. A beautiful yellow bloom was added.
The Thinking of You sentiment is also from Wilson Designs Ride Away With Me

Here is your color inspiration for the week. I hope you will join in and play along. 
Definitely not my go to colors, but that is why I like a challenge. 

I hope you have a fantastic day!
~Tammy~

I was so excited to see that you'd won - and happy that you could play along! I had a hard time with this one too - but exactly, it's good to stretch, and a challenge should be actually CHALLENGING now & then :) Thanks so much for playing with us again!
