We're on Island Time...

The color combo at this week's Color Throwdown Challenge definitely says Island Time to me. Five colors is typically more than I would work with in a design so it took me some time to think this one through but once I decided that I would use my MFT Hibiscus die and make them white it all started to come together. 

Here's the color palette and the image that inspired it. I don't know about you but just looking at it makes me dream of a Caribbean beach with warm sand and cool blue waters. Is that you humming Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville or is it me? :)

Happy Crafting!
