Papertrey Princess Challenge - Hot or Cold?

It's mine turn this fortnight to host the latest Papertrey Princess Challenge and I challenge you to use only Hot colours or only Cold colours on a card. Hot colours are reds, pinks, oranges, yellows and cold colours are blues, greens, greys. Neutrals such as white and cream are allowed.

I started off making one hot and one cold card and then loved them so much that I made another pair to make a little gift set of thank you cards. (I might make a box tomorrow to put them all in as well if I get the time - we're off out to Milton Keynes today for a big shopping day!)

Here's my hot cards - I used the same design throughout my whole set of cards, just changed the colours. For my pink card I used Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Bust and Berry Sorbet and my yellow one used Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold and Lemon Tart.

And my cold cards...The blue one used Ocean Tides, Hawaiian Shores and Aqua Mist and the green one used Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse and Spring Moss.

I hope you can all join in with challenge.
