Lily Pad Card Challenge - Kathy's Palette

I love my colors and this week Kathy came up with an awesome challenge at Lily Pad Cards

Our sponsor this week is Karber Digital Images! They  provided us with our choice of  fun images. I selected the funky mad scientist  Emmet Brown. (The scientist in Back to the Future)
 My kids think he is very fun and keep calling him Einstein...

Simple little watercolor on the image and the background is embossed on grid paper along with bits and pieces of springs and metal.

I had the fun sentiment from Memory Box which I think works perfectly with the card.
Here is the color palette:

All the details of the challenge are at the Lily Pad Blog.

Design Team: Alice Wertz, Deborah Nolan, Lin Brandyberry, Nancy Krueger, Sherri Thompson, Vicki Papaioannou
