A Layout For PRIMA April Palette

Prima's "April Showers" Color Palette
Full of Aquas, Pinks Oranges and Soft Greens
Is just Gorgeous....
So I decided to have a go....:)
Here is my Layout....
I have used Prima's Annalee Range
As I thought it was perfect match for this palette
Along with some Prima Madeline Collection Elements
Prima Lace, Felts, Chipboard, and Alphas....
Only the Cardstock by Coredinatations is not by Prima

Here is the Prima April Palette so you can see...
The Color Match...and Inspiration....

This was definitely a challenge for me as I don't usually use much orange....
I am happy with the concept of this LO......
The Shape etc....And the Border made Piece by Piece... :)
But honestly I think I could have executed it  little better...
Oh well ... there is always next time.....
