Colour Hues - Lilac & Mint

For some reason, I seem to gravitate towards colour challenges that will REALLY challenge me. This time it's lilac and mint from Colour Hues.  I don't have any trouble with the darker purples and greens but this pastel combo is challenging!  Used some Distress Oxides to make a smooshed watercolour background, and then stayed CAS with the rest ... hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day.  I appreciate your comments.
