Challenge #354 - Colors

Greetings, Crafters! This week we have a color palette direct from nature (mostly because in January, I always want a reminder of spring):


For our color challenges, you must use all of the stated challenge colors. You may also use neutral colors; however, the challenge colors should be the most noticeable ones featured on your card. We use Stampin' Up color names for reference, but you are welcome to use any other companies' products as long as you match the challenge colors as closely as possible.
