Kristina's Color Inspiration #50

All right, straight to business today. I had a terrible time trying to get the turquoise in this photo to actually look turquoise! Every time I would take a picture, the teal-turquoise would come out blue! I tried inside, I tried outside, I tried just about every setting I could think of on my camera, and nothing worked! Is teal-turquoise just impossible to capture? If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know! The perfectionist in me is going crazy! Therefore, this is going to be a short and sweet post, due to the frustration! lol

Kristina gave us a doozy for her 50th color challenge this week. Red, yellow, brown, white, and turquoise. I actually had a little idea for this one and decided to let that little bit of mojo flow. I popped up the entire color panel, embossed the flowers with white ep, and combined a few stamp sets to make this card.

Thanks for stopping by!
