I've Got the Summertime Blues

I had the summertime blues while making today's card. Actually, I was making the card to participate in a few challenges. The first challenge was Pals Paper Arts 101 Celebrity Color Challenge - Summertime Blues. I really like the combination of these three blue colours. It makes me think of the clear blue summer sky or the water at the lake. Next, I went to Inkspirations for Sketch Challenge #77. Then I went to Friday Mashup #14 Vintage Flowers Challenge.

Ppa colors
