Play Date Cafe challenge #70

Here is the inspiration photo for this week at the Play Date Cafe.  I associate these colors with Florida, and as I'm writing this post, I'm having a glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice made from Honey Bells - HEAVEN!  The only thing better would be having it on the beach overlooking the beautiful blue-green waters here in Florida, under a palm tree! 


Here is my card using these colors:


I'm also entering this into Moxie Fab World's Stamping With Markers challenge, because all of the birds and flowers were colored with markers after stamping the image using the emboss-resist technique.

supplies: white cardstock, lime Heidi Grace dp, Hero Arts CG270 Flower Bird Garden, CL490 Sending Smiles Messages, CL438 Let's Chill (hibiscus flower), Versamark ink and white embossing powder, then design colored in with Tombow marker green 126, Hero Hues Momento marker blue Summer Sky, and orange Cantaloupe, sentiment stamped with spiced marmalade distress ink, ribbon a gift from my friend Linda
