A summer card for season

Hello, hello! :) Here's a summer birthday card that I made this week for the daughter of one of our close friends. She turned 8 and so I wanted to put a bunch of bright fun colors together to celebrate her birthday. The thought of combining the coral and the pink came by way of a fun accident. I had 2 scraps of those colors next to each other in my scrap bag and the combo caught my eye. I thought it looked fun and just went with it. So I actually had my own color inspiration! :) I hope that she liked it and that I have a few more of these color inspirations on a regular basis.
I used a fun set from CHF - the stamps had been getting a little dusty, so I thought it was time to re-visit and use them again, especially since it is SUMMER. Normally I would color in the images, but in this case I just used stamped them on different colors of CS. I like the look and have to remember to do this again.
...So maybe the break from my CHF stamps was a positive thing creatively for me. ;) Stay tuned to see what else I can come up with creatively.

Adorable beach card! If you ever peek at my blog, you'll see I'm all about the beach! My Christmas card last year had a palm tree on it! LOVE the colors and the palm tree and how whimsical you made this for a little girl! Nice card!
