February Challenge : Mango Breeze

Hello Krafters!

Welcome to our very first KRAFT PLUS CHALLENGE. 
We hope you are as excited as we are right now!

We welcome all kinds of craft as entries for our challenges, from traditional layouts, cards, digital layouts, art journalling and tags etc. but please remember that it is all about the Kraft!

Your work MUST be on a KRAFT BASE to be eligible.
**Please take the time to read the RULES before submitting your entry.**
and upload your entry via the inlinkz section in our sidebar.

So with the formalities out of the way it is time to reveal our challenge!

Our first challenge is : 

Mango Breeze Colour Inspiration challenge.

*please note, this is NOT a mood board where you have to use the photo as inspiration,
this is purely a colour challenge. You can add touches of black, white or neutral for titles and journalling etc and you don't necessarily have to use ALL of the colours.
It is up to you how you interpret the challenge.

And have fun with it!
