Text Color Trends Challenge

When I saw the color scheme for the Text Color Trends Challenge I thought it was going to be a very boring card, and without any bright colors it would look like something was missing. But as usual, I found inspiration in our catalog, and I started combining the four colors and this is what I came up with. I was very happy with the results and I'm so happy I took on the challenge!
