A Day at the Beach =)

Couldn't wait to make this card late last night...  Sometimes I get these cards in my head and just have to get started...  does that happen to you fellow paper crafters???  I love seeing what it turns out to be in the end.  I must admit I am a bit tired this morning and am totally enjoying my coffee!!

The image of course is from the Saturated Canary.  Love, love, love this little girl!!  Having spent my summers growing up at the family beach house in Pocasset on Cape Cod, I was immediately drawn to this image =)  I used the sketch from {Freshly Made} Sketches and the color inspiration from The Color Throwdown.  I love the colors - my favorite combo is blue and yellow!!  (Must be the Swedish in me...).  I am also entering this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge - 3-2-1 (3 buttons, 2 DP, 1 Image) and Saturated Canary - Anything Goes.  This is a first for me to enter one card in 4 Challenges...  but with out planning, they all seem to fit. 

Card Recipe: 
DP My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing
CS - Close to My Heart
Image - Saturated Canary - colored with Copics
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley
Ribbons and Buttons - CtMH
