This month, we are highlighting different color combinations using the 2017-2019 In Colors. I chose to use Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst. I took this color combo from the upcoming Designer Series Paper called Naturally Eclectic (less two of the colors). Also, for each project I used four of the five colors instead of all five together.

2017-2019 In Color Combo

 These cards were all inspired by a card I made last week here. I used the same retiring stamp set for the greetings, called Double Take. I kept the focus on the greetings, and made a variety of watercolor backgrounds to highlight them with.
