  1. This is awesome. I am really excited to see the entries for this color challenge.

    I love the freshness of spring but wasn't really feeling the pastels this year. These are a perfect combination of earth and light.

    Thank you so much for the honor of being included among all this talent.

  2. Great collection of picks, L! Love all the color and richness! Thanks for including my pendant in the group!

  3. This is such a fun challenge. And they couldn't pick a better panel of experts. (Does that mean that you can't play along?)
    I just finished my piece and took some pictures... soon! You are great at sharing eye candy and sources. Thanks! Enjoy the day! Erin
