Colour Challenge Cards

Feels like a while since I posted anything, but in retrospect it has only been 3 days... I have been crafting though... I have made four cards. I made two on Friday night, one I'm not going to share, because I really don't like it... the other is this one for the Moxie Fab World Gray is the new Black Challenge.
I used a retired colour with this card, one I didn't even know I owned... Taken with Teal. I have paired it with Basic Grey, Whisper white and vellum. There was supposed to be another rhinestone, but it fell off somewhere.... "hmmm..."
The next two cards, I created last night, they are also for colour challenges.
The first of the two is for the Just Add Ink colour challenge,
I found that I sat looking at these colours together for a long time before deciding on something... When I did decide, it was to make a card that Danielle Daws had a tutorial for on UStamp. I loved the simplicity of the card she created, and the wow factor that went along with it.... so here is my interpretation
The last card I have to show you is for the Inkspirations most recent colour challenge, which is another doozy...
This is a colour combo I had massive issues with! I'm not a huge fan of Peach Parfait, or Orange in general.... The card I'm not showing you was made with this colour combo... Anyway, here is the card for this challenge
As you can see, I've fallen back into my safe colour of Kraft/Crumbcake... If all else fails, pull out the crumbcake....

Those palm trees and sponging/brayering in the background make me want to go to Hawaii and watch a sunset! Great card. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirations this week :)
