June Challenge - Brown & Teal

Morning everyone,

It's new challenge day here, and it's a fab one.  I think this is a favourite colour combination of most of us, definitely one of mine, it's 'Brown & Teal'.  Kay chose this month's theme, and the team have stepped up!

Our winner from the last challenge, SunshinePen, agreed to be our Guest DT member for today, and has created a beautiful piece to share with you:
