GinaK CSS color challenge

Hallo,
Welcome to another Gian K CSS Alumni blog hop!!! This time we are doing a color challenge.
If you are folowing along the hop then you came to me from Sharri's blog - www.istamp4u.blogspot.com/2012/03/gina-k-designs-css-alumni-hop.html
I am sure Sharri had something awesome for you!!!
If you want to start at the begining of the hop go here - www.stamptv.ning.com.
And remember to leave comments along the hop because we will draw for a large grab bag of Gina K stamps on tuesday am (3-20) from amoung our commenters :)
My card today is a little bright :) - It was a bright and sunny and WARM day here in NW Florida and spring break is in full swing (lots of pale northerners on the beach these days :).
I used the sentiments to create the background and then layered the surfboards on top. I added some blue dots with a Tulip fabric paint pen for a bit of accent and thats all.
My friend and Chief Enabler - Pat - and I went over to Fairhope Alabama today for their big Arts and Crafts fair - we go every year, wander around, gather ideas, sometimes buy a couple things, eat lunch and head home - this year we got done wandering early enough that we made a quick stop at both Hob Lob and Mike's that is near there before heading home. I bought some really cool glasses that I will try to get a picture of tomorrow and a hat at the craft fair and a couple odds and ends at HobLob/Mike's that were on sale. We had a great day - beautiful and sunny and almost too warm (almost).
My kiddos went to the beach this afternoon as this was their first day of spring break and probably won't be home till late evening as they are going to a movie or bowling after the beach....DH has plans for the evening so I headed for the craft room when I came home today :) Happy Me :) I was feeling a bit craft room deprived this week (ahh well wouldn't want like to get boreing would we !! :)
All for tonight - Have a great weekend!!!

This is such a fun card, Tera! Love it that it is bright because it feels really "beachy." the background you created with the words/sentiments is perfect for this card and if I didn't know better, I'd swear it was patterned paper.

You really know how to make colors "pop". It shows in everything you do. What a great card for a teen on spring break or going to the beach on vacation. What a great idea.
