Branch

I have been experimenting with colours a bit to push outside my comfort zone.  Here I used smooshing and a diecut in a simple arrangement, but in tone-on-tone pastel colours. 
Usually I work with strong and often contrasting colours ... I think ... or maybe I don't!  Hmmm, I'll have to think about that a bit more.

A wonderful muted colour-range Carol and a perfect CAS card. So much detail on your card yet still maintaining that fresh and clean feel. Thanks for playing along with us at HLS CAS challenge this month.
