Color Dare #139 - Sorbet & Champagne (Pearls optional)

Hi! Thanks to everybody who joined us in our bright colors challenge last week. We had some great participation. I hope you all can find some time to play along this week. I don't know if you find fewer colors easier to work with, or more colors easier. I find fewer colors easier! This week, we only have two colors for you. If you need to, you can add white, and you can add black for outlines and sentiments. But try to stick to just these two colors otherwise:

Sorbet
Champagne
Optional twist: add pearls


Here are our samples from our wonderful Design Team:




Now it's your turn!  Create something using these colors. If you don't have the exact colors, use the closest you have.
