InStyle Colour Challenge: Where's the Party?

Hi All,

***Scroll down for the Some Odd Girl blog hop!
We are playing along with the colour challenge for this month over on the InStyle Stamps blog.  Once you're done here, head on over there to see what the whole DT have done, and to submit your own creation.  Virginia always has some awesome prizes to be won!  This month's inspiration is a very juicy, colourful fruit...tomatoes!  Taylor chose this picture for everyone:

For those of you that love tomatoes, I bet this picture makes your mouth water!

Here is my card:

My card base is So Saffron.  Next, is a layer of Haiku DSP with a Basic Black mat.  I wrapped some miscellaneous ribbon around that.  For the next panel, I took a Whisper White piece and sponged it with Bashful Blue ink to make the clouds.  I stamped the sentiment "Where's the Party?" with Basic Black ink and a small alphabet set.  I took a green piece from the Haiku DSP pack, and cut it with my Martha Stewart grass edge punch, and layered that onto a black piece. 

I printed Beach Dude onto PTI White CS, coloured him with Copics, cut him out, and mounted him on with Dimensionals.  This guy is a pretty buff dude - I wouldn't mind staring at him on a nice day at the beach.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!  Don't forget to play along to win an awesome prize!
