When I first saw LeAnn's colors I was pretty scared. Magenta Madness is a bit bright for me. I had no idea what to do. In looking around Pinterest I came upon a card by an Australian demo and decided to CASE it in the challenge colors.
This card is not a direct CASE but definitely similar. When I saw the flowers, lipstick and the shoes I decided that I could go with the MM and just tone it down a bit with watercoloring. And It worked!
I had hoped to find a watercolor striped paper in one of the colors but then I saw that this DSP has these colors in it! Plus the gold! So my stripe idea went by the wayside and in came the floral.
I'm very pleased with how this came out, especially since I was so concerned about getting something I like with these colors. Thank you LeAnn for taking me outside of my comfort zone!

Very different card and I really like it. The theme and all the elements you added to make this scene are really fun to look at. The designer paper coordinates so nicely with the colors you have chosen to work with
