Colors mix up -- FTL116 and DCB202

Good morning, I have a funny story that goes with this card. I've told y'all that I'm color blind, right? Well, I chose the Diva Coffee Break DCB202 color challenge using Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, and Concord Crush. And the only Concord Crush I have is from the In Color Hostess pad. The IBC lists the colors included in the pad. I thought they listed them in the order of the pad. Evidently NOT! I brought my card to my friend Janet to photograph. And she had a very subdued response to my card. I told her it was a color challenge; she said they definitely weren't colors she'd put together. She takes the picture and we move on. Next, she's helping me sort through all my assorted cardstock packages and label the colors. We get to my In Color pack, and she says Poppy Parade, the one you used on that card. I said, I didn't use Poppy Parade, I used Concord Crush. She said, you used the wrong color then -- and it doesnD't look good. I guess Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, and Poppy Parade is a color combination I'll avoid! :-)

I have now corrected my card to use Concord Crush. Janet says it looks much better. I hope you like it, too. And the sketch is from Clean & Simple's FTL116. Thanks for stopping by!
