Color Throwdown Challenge 91 and KSS Crew Challenge 25-2

The color pallette for the Color Throwdown challenge this week is near red, tempting turquoise, and kiwi kiss. I love the kiwi and turquoise colors together. I just didn't know about the red until I thought about my Kitchen Sink cardinal stamp. The turquoise oval was left from another set of cards I did where I cut out the shape and used the reverse for my card front. Suddenly I had a card which not only met the criteria for the Color Throwdown Challenge, but also for the Kitchen Sink Stamps crew challenge which is a sketch. See my May 4th post.
Color recipes: All inks are Adirondack
Cardinal -- 1 mountain rose, 2 watermelon, 3 cranberry, 4 archival black
Branch -- 1 sandal, 2 hazelnut, 3 expresso
Leaves -- 1 willow, 2 lettuce
