The colors of a camel caravan.....Play Date Cafe' Challenge

There are no camels or green chairs on my card, but I have worked with the Play Date Cafe' color challenge of dark brown, green, and beige.  A beauty from the "Les Femmes" sheet of Altered Pages is framed by varied patterned papers in the challenge colors, accented by green pearls and flower.
(I just figured it out!  The original flower was overpowering, but I didn't have a smaller one.  Then I decided to amputate some petals. The result is a much better balance, I believe.)

You are the first!

She is very beautiful and you have got a good handle on interpreting this colour combination.

I love the different layers you have used. It is a very appealing card. I have still got my thinking cap on.

Love how this turned out. All your color shades work so much better than the darker ones called for, and the beauty of the lighter green flower just tops everything off. That musical background works well for this as well. Good job. Denise B.
