H2H - Love of Colour Peony Flower

Welcome to this week's Heart 2 Heart challenge! 

If you are not yet familiar with the Love of Colour book, you need to be! It is a fabulous resource created by Close To My Heart that lists all the current colours and provides three colour schemes that work with each of those colours. The three colour schemes that are provided for each colour use three, four of five colours from the CTMH colour palette. 

Whether you struggle to put fabulous colour combinations together or not, this is a must-have resource. The projects shown alone are a terrific starting point when you are having creative-block and can't decide where to begin. Then there are the colour schemes that provide so much inspiration as well. 

This week, Heart 2 Heart is asking you to choose one colour scheme from the Love of Colour book to use for your project. There are so many from which to choose! 

I narrowed my choices down to two - and it was TOUGH! It came down to 
a) Pansy, Lagoon and Peacock
b) Raspberry, Lagoon and Peacock

Both contain my favourite colours... but the second combination won. 

I chose to colour the flowers in Raspberry and the leaves in Lagoon. Peacock was an accent colour only. I did have to cheat a tiny bit for the flower centres and add a light pink.

Come and join us at Heart 2 Heart and show us which colour combination you select from 
Love of Colour!

Alyson, your card is beautiful!! I always struggle to make leaves any color but green but I love it with the lagoon. You definitely inspired me to step out side my normal!
