Bloomin Mae

Hi all! Thought I'd get this card finished since the image has been colored and waiting on me for a couple of weeks. You know, all the other seasons are easy to create for... but summer doesn't seem to be as easy for me. Obviously beach and swimming images work but what are the colors of summer exactly? I guess that it's basically bright and bold colors? Anyway... this is my attempt at a summer card. :)

Stamps: Some Odd Girl Bloomin Mae, Raindrop Echo Designs
Papers: Echo Park A Walk in the Park
ProMarkers: Cool Aqua, Duck Egg, Cocoa, Cinamon, Tan, Sunflower, Olive Green, Marsh Green, Moss, Ivory, Blush
