Tropical Hello

I  immediately fell in love with the inspiration photo at the ColourQ challenge this week - don't know why it took me so long to make a card with these scrumptious colors!  They make me think of Florida!


I am not a Stampin Up girl, so I don't own a single one of these colors, but I tried my best to match them with what I have.....looks like I need to find that nice sherbety peach color.....all of my peaches are towards the pink side rather than the yellow......

ColourQ#236

supplies: Technique Tuesday's Two Steppin, sentiment from Lil' Inker's Darling Diamonds, Adirondack Sunset Orange, Hero Arts Orange Soda, Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue inks, lots of masking, and sequins from Lawn Fawn to bring in that paler aqua color.

We're having a heat wave here - temps in the 70's - whoo-hoo!!  Unfortunately, they're forecasting a high of 35 degrees on Tuesday, so I won't be celebrating for long........

Thanks for stopping by today!!

  1. Pretty color combo and card! Take a look at Hero Arts Fresh Peach and/or Soft Cantaloupe for a nice peachy color. Ihaven't tried combining them with blue but after seeing your pretty card, I will now!
