May XOXO Challenge: COLOR!

Wow, has this month been hectic!! I realized today that I had yet to post my XOXO scraplift challenge layout...whoops!

This month, we are asking for your layouts in unconventional colors. Maybe it's a color combo that doesn't work so well normally, or just colors you rarely use in a layout. Whatever your interpretation of "unconventional color" is, show it to us!

Here's the direction I decided to go:
I wouldn't normally pair the blueish-greens of the embellies and alpha, the burgundy, and the yellow together, but I must say I like how it turned out. The papers and elements all come from the Scraptastic April I Feel Pretty kit (well, all except for the kraft mat.) I misted the background paper (Neapolitan) and then matted the photos on the kraft piece which was border punched. Add some random elements and there you have it!
 Red jute accented with a greenish-blue spectrum Noir marker. Jillibean journal spot with a red and greenish-blue Spectrum Noir marker for the saying. That fun burgundy/kraft strip is MME Funday.
 MME Funday strip, Neapolitan green/white stripey strip, and MME Miss Caroline label.
 Simple Stories Fab-U-Lous alpha/flower sticker, more red Spectrum Noir.
 Lots of fun Miss Caroline goodies (doily sticker and rub on), Jillibean journal spot, Simple Stories Fab-U-Lous "sweet", and Crate Paper Random brad.
Head over to the XOXO blog to show off your interpretation of our challenge for a chance to win a guest DT spot. Hurry, 9 days left! (I know, I dropped the ball here. I hang my head in shame.)
