Sending a SUMMER hello - Paper Play Sketches

Wednesday August 23, 2017
Well it's time for another challenge at
and this time it's a color challenge
This is the color card for you to follow

This is my card.. Can you tell what the background is??? not the stamping part---- but the paper???????
It's a color chart you find in the paint section of your home décor store...
I have a big stack of them and I thought hum I need a couple colors of blues and when I was looking through my designer papers the colors didn't seem to go together... I though dang this clashes with this and so on and so forth.. So I remembered my box of paint sample cards and found the perfect blues.. They don't clash cause they are meant work together.
 The bikini colors is also from a paint chart card..
So I have this stamp set that came in my Simon Says kit of the month with these awesome clouds, birds, sentiment.. So I white embossed the clouds and black embossed the sentiment. The seagulls are just stamped on and no embossing. I then took a couple Simon Says stamps.. one is a series of dots and the other was a series of hearts. I stamped them on the purple and white embossed. I used the bikini die and cut them out then added glossy accents to them. I didn't add it to the tie areas but just the larger areas.
I like that the layout of the colors kinda give the water/sky look.  
I then added this to my card base and called it a super fun card.
if you look on the left hand side you can see the paint colors names and numbers.. LOL..
