OCC Color Challenge - Wild Thing!

The OCC has a Color Challenge for you today.... Our March hostess, Kim Teasdale, has picked these colors for this week's challenge: Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and One Neutral Color.... I loved every one's samples for today, the same colors but all so different looking! WOW! My card definitely got a little wild... I just couldn't stop. I hand drew little circles to make the polka-dot border around all my Nestie pieces, also adding a blue inner frame and tiny black dots... like I said I couldn't stop. Then I had to use my Martha punch down both sides, cause I love 'em, and can't stop using those either. I airbrushed a little blue and colored the birdies with Copics. I also highlighted over "Wild Thing" with a Copic. Added one jewel, cause bling is always good, but so much was going on here that anything more would have been too much! There's even some cuttlebug action on the light blue octagons. Finished card is an A2.
