Celebrate Summer card

There were so many current challenges with a summer theme, so I decided to make this bright and cheerful summery card. I used "springtime" papers by Echo Park which are my favourites at the moment. I used  a  girly  image from LOTV  to match with all the lovely colours of my papers. I used a pretty flower which matches the colour of my matting card and added my favourite candy  embellishment to the centre. h  http://spcolorcombos.thescrapmaster.com/ and  http://inkspirations-challenges.blogspot.com/   have colour inspiration challenges. It was so hard to match the colours exactly but I tried to get as close to them as I could.
