Turquoise Temptation

I do like a bit of turquoise on my cards and both of these use colour combos that I really liked!

This first card is for SUO Challenge #58 to make a CAS holiday card - I hope this is CAS enough as I just don't do CAS, but I did try to keep everything to a minimum! It is also for Just Add Ink's Challenge #144 to just add music and for CC401 to use Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green and Pear Pizzazz.

And my final card for today is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #3 for November, Friday MashUp's Challenge #85 to use leaves on a thank you card (I still haven't found a leaf stamp set I really like, so I used an embossing folder for the leaves on this one!) and for Color Throwdown's Challenge #218 to use this gorgeous colour combo! I did use Pool Party instead of Cool Caribbean as I don't have that colour.


And here's my card.

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by!
