Color Throwdown #43

I found this color throwdown challenge via Robyn's blog (check it out, there is some awesome work there) and this design that I had seen on Michelle Zindorf's blog popped straight into my head. So I thought I would give it a go using these 3 colors. I love this card, in real life it is soooo much better, I will try for a new photo in the morning. The fishies from the "Ocean Commotion" set are stamped in elegant eggplant, the seaweed in old olive and I have brayered on lavender lace, then matted it all up on matching card stock, I love these kissing fishies, sooooo cute!
My hubby is at work so I have a date with Edward (I wish, I am off to watch Twilight...again)

OK, so it's sunny skies here this morning, and here is my updated photo...but it still isn't capturing the colors that well, you will just have to believe me that this card really POPs!

PS It was lovely to wake up this morning to such wonderful comments, what a great start to the day! Thank you!
