Color Throwdown #36

Happy Friday everyone!!! WoooHooo, we have made it to the weekend!!! How exciting is that? Nothing special here. The week is winding down and I have had a bunch of time to relax but no desire to craft. I know, I know, how bad is that? This is why. The desert winds have began. We are expecting gusts upwards of 60 mph. Yeah, gotta love it. With that comes my allergies. I usually don't take anything. I hate taking anything. I have migraines I and try my hardest not to take anything for them as well. But sometimes I just can't do it anymore and force myself to take some Tylenol or Excedrin just to be able to function again. Well, I decided to try some new allergy medicine because the other wasn't working. I had a bad allergy attack last week so I took something, yeah, I just fell asleep instead. This passed weekend I tried a "trial" size of another brand. That one puts me to sleep too, it helped, but ever since I have been fighting with myself not to fall asleep.
But on to the color challenge. Cambria directed me to a blog called "Color Throwdown". Cambria is a co-owner of a stamp company, "Our Craft Lounge", they are awesome. Marianne from "I Like Markers" is their illustrator. Marianne is an awesome artists and I am so glad I got the chance to meet her and the other owners of Our Craft Lounge.
The challenge was to use 3 colors on your card. The 3 colors are turquoise, orange and pink (Our Craft Lounge's company colors).
This was a really hard one for me because those are so not the colors I am comfortable using. So if you have a pair of sunglasses handy you might want to pull them out.
I am very happy with this card though. It is so not my usual style but I had fun using these wonderful colors. I tell you though, it really was a challenge for me.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
