New Color Challenge

I had such a good time working with a color challenge last week that I joined a new one this week!  The colors are- Peach Parfait (REALLY hard for me to like), Lucky Limeade, and Pool Party (Connie & Mary Challenge ccmc193).  I like this challenge because it gets me out of my comfort zone to try something I wouldn't otherwise use.  Here is what I came up with:
This challenge is made easier because the Everyday Enchantment DSP has those three colors together already so I used this as my jumping board.  This card is HEAVY on the sizzix- I had some new products I haven't used much so today was the day.  To make the ribbon all wrinkly I used my heat tool to melt it just a bit- I love this shaggy effect.  There is just a little stamping on this card- I love the Creative Elements stamp set these days, and the greeting is from Perfectly Penned.
