Default CC174: Groovy Banana Chips

Hi, friends! Emily is up (well, from me it's 'up') in Missouri visiting with family, so she asked if I'd sub for her with the Color Challenge this week. Now, before those of you familiar with my predilection for colors like Glorious Green, Orchid Oppulence and Yo-Yo Yellow start screaming 'Why?! Why her?!' at your computer screens, hear me out! I did not use one single bold bright in this color challenge. It's true!

So ready for me to quit beating around the bush? Okay, here goes... This week's color challenge is to use

Groovy Guava,
Barely Banana,
and
Chocolate Chip

Not bad, huh?!?!

And here's my sample:

Smile, Sprinkle!


Here's the gallery:

CC174 Groovy Banana Chips

Enjoy, my peeps! After all, if I'm fortunate enough to do this again, chances are I'll up to my old tricks!

I think it's nice to have a fresh take on the color challenge. After a while sometimes the challenges start to feel the same...this one looks like fun, I'll have to put on my thinking cap.
