Ready for SUN and SAND?

 I am ready for some sunshine after all the snow and grey skies. I recently won the "Hello Sunshine" stamp set that is a new release from Mark's Finest Papers...what a great set to bring on some sunny cards! I made this card for their color challenge to use Mustard, Blue and Green. I used the same stamp twice...once using Memento Cantaloupe ink and the second time I inked the stamp with Memento markers in Summer Sky, Bamboo Leaves, Rich Cocoa, and Black and sponged it with Summer Sky. I cut out the first image stamped in Cantaloupe and then cut the center out  with a Nestie circle and layered this over the scene. Used Blue CS as base card and layered with a striped mat from DCWV Citrus mat stack embossed with Cuttlebug EF Diamond Wave. Stamped sentiment from this stamp set on an oval . Assembled card with ribbon, buttons, sentiment and the image using a Sketch from Card Patterns.
This will be a card for my SIL recently retired.
Challenges:
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge: Use mustard, blue, green. Think the cantaloupe ink is a good color for mustard?
Card Patterns Sketch 95: Shown to the right.
