Colour Inspiration # 52

I've had some creating time today so I'm pleased that Kristina posted her Colour Inspiration Challenge - the first one I've managed in a while & a beautiful mix of soft colours. The layout of my card is one that I've in fact cased from one of Kristina's cards in her virtual card club for March. Here's my card:

Stamps: Sanded background, Just Surfing, On your birthday Ink: Baja breeze, so saffron, more mustard Card: white, baja breeze, sweet slumber dsp (sky background) Other: Baja breeze striped grosgrain, linen thread, corner rounder, more mustard button (retired), 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches.

Here's the inspiration picture:

That's all for now!

Have a good week!
