Guylou's Creative Khaki Color Challenge

Guess what time it is?!  It's time for another awesome challenge at Guylou's Inimitability and Tracy has picked an awesome challenge for you to play along with!  What is it you might ask?  Well its a color challenge with a fun little twist!  So here is the color palette that Tracy has chosen:
Pretty yummy right?!  Well now here is the twist:  You must use an unconventional item on your project... i.e. foil, a washer, mesh screen, a screw, something that could be found around the house (those ideas are brewin', right??). 
And here is Leah all decked out in those fabby colors!!  For my unconventional item, I used some kitchen twine and made the center of the flower and made my own little embellie!  You have until May 5th to play along - hope to see you all there!
