Card Concept Challenge #14: Colors

Hope everyone in the United States had a great 4th of July holiday and have been enjoying the beautiful warm weather.  Card Concept #14 has a fun challenge for you today...a color challenge.
I have a feeling this is going to one of our most popular challenges so far...just look at those bright, summery colors!  In addition to the colors, I picked up on the cute feathered comforter in the inspiration photo.
Here at the Card Concept challenge, I represent the Freestyle Collage style of cardmaking which includes:
                                                        Unrelated elements in a collection
                                                        Can be done in any style

I used a Blueprints Die set from My Favorite Things Stamps (Blueprints #15) and had a blast arranging and rearranging all the elements until I had just the right look.  I used Waltzingmouse Stamps Funky Feathers to stamp the bright blue pattern and an Impression Obsession Distressed Dots Cover a Card stamp for the red polka dots.  Don't those feathers look just like the ones in the inspiration photo?

If you've never played along with Card Concept challenges, all you have to do is be inspired by the photograph and create a card using one of the following six card making styles.

             Clean and Simple 
               Clean and Layered 
                                                        Clean and Graphic
                                                        Freestyle Collage
                                                        Shabby Chic
                                                        Classy and Elegant

You have two weeks to link up your card over on the Card Concept blog.  The challenge ends on Monday, July 21st at noon PST.
