Papertrey February Blog Hop - Sweet Spring: with a grateful heart

Doesn't this blog hop image from Papertrey Ink make you think of bunnies, chicks and pastels?  Ahh, spring, how I miss you! :)
Looking at my inks, I wanted to try a different colour combo  --- and this is definitely out of my comfort zone and norm!  I used my Fresh ink in Peach, stamping off every second row.  I just love the graphic look of this pattern.
I then layered a sentiment in Turquoise ink using Papertrey's Birds and Bloooms set.  The ikat is mor modern and then the sentiment more traditional but I kinda like the juxtaposition.
Any unusual colour combos you've tried lately that are out of your norm?
