Two Colours Challenges, What FUN!

Those who know me know I LOVE a great colour challenge!!! It is sure a REAL challenge when we are encouraged to use colours which have retired. Of course we always have the option of using a close enough colour but I always like to try my best to play along with the challenge totally...
