Color Combination Challange (A Tough One!)

This card was made for the Color Combination Challange (CC274) on Splitcoast Stampers.  The challenge this week is to create a card using the colors Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral and Ruby Red along with any neutral. I have to tell you this was a tough one for me. I would not have normally put these colors together, and it did take me most of the day to wrap my mind around the challenge.

I think overall the card came out pretty good. In fact my husband just walked in and picked up the card.  I immediately said "I know, it's not very good, but it's for a challenge". He replied, "What are you talking about I think it looks great. I really like the colors."  So I guess maybe the color combo might not be as strange as I first thought.

Oh, and since Ruby Red and Cameo Coral are retiring colors I even managed to use up some of my paper stash!
