Lime? Yes, Lime!

This week at The Color throwdown, the main color is lime green? What? I generally steer clear of anything that is lime green! Bu, the design team's challenges were so beautiful, I had to give it a try! And, I am so glad I did!
I also used this super fun sketch from Paper Pal Arts. I always love sketches with stacked images!


My picture doesn't really give the lime the justice it deserves. it really pops off the card.




This lime green color is a retired SU color, and for the life of me, i can't remember what it's called! I found it in my scraps files! Sorry...

Ink and paper: Basic Grey, Basic Black, Lime Green (don't know the name!), Wild Wasabi DSP, Newsprint, Versamark
