Critter Sketch Color Challenge

The challenge over at Critter Sketch challenge blog this week is to create a project with these colors based on this picture, provided by http://design-seeds.com/index.php/home/entry/mental-vacation5.  Aren't those colors gorgeous, and I would love nothing more than to be sitting under that umbrella right now, laying on the beach, reading a book!!  Sounds like a piece of heaven to me!

Be sure to enter the challenge, our sponsor this month is Robyn's Fetish, the winner will get 5 digi stamps of their choosing!!

I tried to recreate the beach scene with this card, I used the sandcastle and umbrella  from the Create a Critter cartridge, the clouds were from a clear stamp, the sun was done with a circle punch and I just cut little strips for the rays.  The cute girl is a digi stamp from Some Odd Girl, she's adorable and I thought fit the scene perfectly.  I used glossy accents on her sunglasses and just colored her up with copics.  I kinda feel like the card needs something else, but can't put my finger on it, and I didn't want to keep adding to it for fear of overdoing it and then ruining it.....so I guess it stays as is for now.  Maybe shading or inking....hmmm, I'll have to see about that!

I'm entering the following challenges
