Color Challenge-CR84FN9

My first time playing on this color challenge blog, CR84FN9, where the colors this week are yellow, light pink and peach.  These are colors that I never use, especially together!, but it all came together pretty quickly.  I pulled the paper from my stash and stamped using the Artistic Outpost Bluebird plate. 

I do believe my computer needs one of those color grabber sheets as it keeps changing the colors.  From my camera, the lower right turned blue and the yellow bg turned lime green.  From the scanner....the white at the lower right is peachie blotch and the peach is now pink.  I totally give up and hate when things try to control me, lol!

It took me longer to make this blog post then it did to make the card! Yikes!!

...and here is the inspiration....
                                                   
As always, thanks for stoppin' by, hugz
