Mad for Markers ~ Colour Challenge

Boy oh Boy did I find the new challenge this month over at Mad For Markers a challenge.  The challenge is to use colours from the RV, YR and BG families which I didnt think would pose too much of a problem but I was very wrong!  The hardest thing I found with the colours I actually have inthose ranges was getting my skin tone right!  I must have wasted at least 4 images in  the process before I got to one I liked! lol still it was all good practice! and I got there in the end!  I have used another of the images from TGF which I got a Sillyu Monkey Crafts closing down sale, this time I have used Hope & Grace Sing, my papers are from the M&MBI paper pad which I have had for a while now but I love and I have hidden a message under the image and after I had sorted out the flap I couldnt get it to stay closed enough then remembered some tiny little magnets I bought ages ago but I cant remeber where from and they have worked perfectly.  The leaves are punched from scraps of cs and the flowers are from my stash.  I am pleased with this card but it certainly was a challenge to make and I so wanted ot get it right as its my Mothers Day card, now I'm just wondering if my mum will be tempted to look or if she will be good and not be tempted, only time will tell! lol

The colours I ended up using are: Skin - YR 61, guitar - YR 23, bikini - BG 96, hair - YR 31 & 23 flower - YR 16 & 68


I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
