Fancy Sunbonnet Beach

I've been asked to be a challenge guest at Bastel-Traum Challenges today and they have a fun color challenge up for the week!  The colors you'll see below but are mainly green, yellow and purple.  I've chosen to use Fancy Sunbonnet Beach and go with a summer theme to my card...

I will have to admit that sometimes when creating for a color challenge, I tend to forget some of the colors and this one is no exception.  So instead of purple, I had used teal when I colored!  Oops!  But with the help of Photoshop I was able to correct the main image to showcase for the challenge and all is well.  Where did I get the blue?  No idea but I need to start writing these colors down instead of working from memory.  LOL

The image I used is Fancy Sunbonnet Beach rubber stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and was drawn by Bugaboo.  I love how she's carrying her beach bucket and ready for a day of fun!

Lucky for me, the rest of the colors I used were matching. The card was put together with odds and ends from my stash and I tried to keep with a nautical/beach feel to it.  Overall, I'm happy with how it turned out and will be pleased to share this with a friend.  :D  Thank you Bastel-Traum for having me as a guest!!
