March Color Challenge.

We're back again with our color challenge this month, bringing you a color combo & inspiration from a few of our Butterflies each month. To start you off this month, Shay is sharing a layout with you made with lots of mist & Evalicious products. Here's this month's color combo:

I KNEW I just had to use these Evalicious goodies for a color challenge, they were just so fab all together, and not at all colors I would've thought to throw together until now. I did add in some blue for an extra pop of color, and I LOVE how it turned out. Right now I am all about using unique around the house items on my layout, for instance the dot "mask" is from a used up sheet of 3-D dots-- why not get some use out of the packaging before I toss it in the trash? lol

Here's my layout:

I hope all of you are inspired to use this color combo in an upcoming project, and invite you to participate in our challenge! Link up below with a project using this color scheme, and you can win a stash of fun new goodies!
