Challenge Entry - Summer Time Card!

Another of my SUMMER cards where I chosen a sea/ocean theme!  I love-love-love doing these
kinds of projects at this time of year....which is why I buy stamps and equipment to equip me to make them and I buy the supplies from all over, no particular favorites.

Here I have used a 'Your Next Stamp' stamp set - Happy Birthday Mermaid' paired with a simplier stamp set of sea creatures {the starfish, fish and seahorse} and even a foam leaf stamp for the background. 

I also have entered this for COLOR THROWDOWN  whose celebrating their 200th Challenge - so, CT200 naturally!  The colours chosen were:
Pink Passion
Certainly Celery
Chocolate Chip
Pumpkin Pie
Tempting Turquoise 
I have used all of the above colours in one way or another on my card.  Certainly Celery is on the Mermaids's fins but also is sponged around the card's edges and overtop of the Turquoise water! Chocolate Chip is in one's hair, and fome finer detail on another mermaid. Pumpkin Pie makes up the starfish and within the seahorse, and there are accents of Pink Passion in the tiniest starfish, hair and flowers, and ribbon. Its all there. What a fun time this was as I love colouring and cutting out stamp images from time to time like this! 
Here are a few more pics - hope y'all like!!!
