Continuing with an overview of the new 2017-2019 In Colors, I want to introduce you to our fourth colour, the bright Lemon Lime Twist...

Lemon Lime Twist is a playful, neon colour that is big in fashion trends.  This loud chartreuse hue sits halfway between yellow and green, so is more green than Daffodil Delight and more yellow than Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive (although these two colours are yellow-greens).  This is the party colour in your collection and is perfect for adding a vibrant pop to your projects.

That palm frond is really versatile!

One of my favourite embellishments from the new Annual Catalogue is the gorgeous 1/4" Ombre Ribbon, where the colour fades from dark on one edge to light on the other.  Here it is in Lemon Lime Twist (it also comes in Calypso Coral and Island Indigo)...

Here's another project that features Lemon Lime Twist, but as an accent colour - it goes great with the new Powder Pink.  These are the thank you cards I sent with all the orders from the Annual Catalogue Launch Party...

Fabulous Flamingo Encouragment Note Card

Do you see the gorgeous texture behind the Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon?  It's the 1/2" Copper Trim, another of my new favourite ribbons.  You can keep this trim narrow and sleek, or spread the loose weave for added texture.  And it's so fun to play with!
