Kristina Werner Color Inspiration # 29

Hold on to your hats, these colors are out of my element! :)
This time, Kristina Werner came up with Pacific Point, Taken with Teal, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.
ScAAHry!
But it was an intriguing enough combo for me to go " huuuh...what could I do?" and then I made this:
And I'm not completely won by it. I was happy to change a branch into a peacock feather (image from the Flourishes "All That Glitters" set)...but it's the Eggplant and the Pacific Point that freak me out a touch mucho. If this weren't for a challenge...I would have added White ribbon, and made the Eggplant base Black or Kraft.
All in the name of stretching our horizons in the creative process. :)
Stretch with me! :)

This card reminds me of my office. I had teal display cases I could not afford to replace, and when we had to choose a color to update with, it ended up being what the paint store called "Blue Purple" or as Jared likes to refer to it...."Burple." LOL....it is beautiful, and I can only hope our color combination looks half as nice.
