There She Goes Weekly Challenge

Did you know that There She Goes has weekly challenges? Yep, they do!! They are just for fun, but fun they DEFINITELY are!! This week's challenge is brought to you in part by Holly. We are going to have an inspiration beach party! The website Touch Of Class has lots of gorgeous stuff to oogle and this week we are going to take pieces from their tropical artas inspiration for a card/project. Please link directly to your project in this thread so we can all check out your work and if you upload to an online gallery, use the keyword TSG12.
For my card, I chose this piece as my inspiration. It inspired my colors, style of flower, and layout. My colors got a little brighter than this, but the general orangish feel is there. I also mimicked the blocking in the back with my DP's. My colors are Groovy Guava, Certainly Celery and Tangerine Tango. The brads are from Hobby Lobby and all the ribbons are from SU. The main image was stamped on an MFT Perfect Panel with Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored with Copics. All the layers have piercing. I did use a white gel pen to add something to the flowers. I used the Bloom set from TSG, unfortunately it is out of stock, but will be back in a few weeks....trust me, when it comes back, I will DEFINITELY let you know. It is by far and away the most gorgeous flower set EVER in my opinion.
