Phindy's Friday Challenge

TGIF! Time for another Phindy's Friday Challenge (this first challenge for 2012). The theme this week is a color challenge. Phindy has lots of images in her shop that would work out perfectly with this challenge. 

Here are the colors: brown, teal, white and celery/moss. It's such a fresh and hip color palette, was really fun to work with!

I went with Connected Girl for my image this week. She is so perfect for a tween or teen card. Will probably go to one of my nieces for her birthday.

Hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog and see what the DT has created this week. Play along with the challenge to win some prizes. It's not necessary to use a Phindy image, but if you do you get entered twice, so that is some pretty good incentive!
