FLLC August New Release Challenge!!

Happy Friday!

Flourishes August NewRelease is around the corner and it is time to play another FLLC Release Challenge (FLLCAUG13)!! How about we throw a fun color challenge at you that mixes Summer and Autumn colors together and challenge you to create something with the potential to WIN our August New Releases!

Here are the colors:
A lovely teal, a rich rust and a neutral gray. What we love about this challenge is that all of these colors can be found in our Flourishes Color Made Easy Collections. Emerald Coast, Terra Cotta and either Cool Neutrals or Tonal Neutrals, isn't that great?

Some of the Flourishes Design Team were blessed to be able to gather together just a few weeks ago in Yellowstone National Park for a wonderful weekend. We realized that there was some beautiful scenery right in front of us that matched the colors of our challenge this month, so we thought we'd show that off to you as well...

Beautifully colored mineral Ink Pots in just the right shades! 

Here is my color challenge card :)
I used Bees & Blossoms set. I had to add a little yellow & green with the color combo but that's necessary for the blower and bees, right? ;) The hardest part was to keep the blossoms with more terra cotta than orange. I hope they are close enough to the terra cotta cardstock color.


Bees & Blossoms

Memento - Flannel Gray, Morocco, Teal Zeal
