The Colors of Friendship

Hello, Hello, Hello!
Today I have a card to show you for my first DT post at
I am so honored to have been chosen for this privilege and I would like to say a humongous thank you to all the ladies there for giving me this opportunity. 
Okay, so on to the challenge at hand...it's a trio of colors.  Ready for this????
Navy, Pink, and You Pick!!
The lovely Sharon Wheet is hosting this week and here are a few words about her challenge
"Create a paper craft item and use the challenge colors: Navy, Pink, and whatever other color you decide. You pick the missing color, any color; Kraft, Yellow, River Rock, Gray, Metallic, etc. (Neutrals don't count: black, white, cream, or brown)"
As you can see here, my third color choice was green.  I've white powder embossed the navy background, created a chevron pattern with variations of muted pink, a polka dotted ribbon, two banners, a bow, button, rose, copic colored pearls, and a sentiment; all coordinated in the three specific colors for this challenge. White is my neutral color of choice.

Sharon has also included an inspirational photo collage to tempt your creative senses
We would absolutely LOOOVE for you to take part in this 3 color challenge and for more inspiration check out the other amazing projects from the rest of team here at
Thank you SO much for stopping in.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...

Well if I haven't congratulated you before let me do it now. But honestly Lisa - you are one of the most talented paper crafters out there and to put the chocolate on top of the whipped cream, you have the best sense of humor. They are sooooo lucky to have you!! And now you show your softer side. Your card is beautiful - love the color combo. I hope I can participate in one of your challenges.

The white embossing on the black texture really looks awesome, Lisa! Sensational job on this color challenge. Your mini banner is terrific and the quote as your sentiment is wonderful. I always love using quotes. What a knock-out first piece for OCC - so great to have you aboard.

First and foremost, you have created a gorgeous piece for your unveiling as a new DT member! Not that any of us that follow you didn't already know you were capable of this ;)
Love the embossed background and the gorgeous layered border with the banners and flower! It manages to be bold and soft at the same time. The green was a wonderful choice for the 3rd color. It works so well with the navy and pink!
Congrats on your newest DT position!
