Just Us Girls #80 - Color Challenge with a Twist & Card Patterns Sketch 111

For this weeks color challenge, I was excited. I love the colors that were picked, Aqua, Kraft, Black and Coral. I have for all of my adult life been a coral person. In my color choice for clothes and in my Home. In the 1980s most of the homes in America were decorated in Blues and Mauves; mine was in shades of Green and Coral.

On the card is a crocheted flower that I made, it's one of the things I like to do when I am sitting watching TV. I am able to make 1 in about 15 min. It’s great to have a supply on hand for my creations.
