My first color challenge!

This is from Kristina Werner's Color Challenge #21.
The colors were different for me-so at first try my card came out sort of modern and edgy looking. I was holding the baby, trying to tape it up when a mishap became the new idea. That, coupled with my limited supplies brought this card into the sort of Shabby Chic look you see above. I really love how it turned out. I would never have chosen these colors together-but now they will be under favorites in my Color Q! Thanks for looking!
