Hello Katie
Love the brilliance of this card, your turquoise palette adds a whole new dimension to this colour family, and it becomes dynamic; an engaging colour. A warm and playful blue and very pleasing to the eye. Gorgeous card.
Thank you so much for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner, we are so pleased to see your work.
Smiles:)
