ColorQ Challenge #149

I decided to try another color challenge.  This one was really a "challenge" because it's not necessarily colors I would put together.  I think that's what color and sketch challenges are all about.  Try something new every now and then and it will improve your creative thinking.

This is the ColorQ Challenge #149:

I took a pretty easy and simple approach to the color challenge.  Besides participating in color and sketch challenges, I'd also like to improve my skills at Clean And Simple (CAS) cards. 

Here's everything I used:

None....I printed the greeting using My Digital Studio
