Curtain Call Colour Challenge- Act #35

Hello and welcome back for another of Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenges!  Act 35 calls into play some wonderful summery colours, not that Australia is feeling summery- Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!
Any hoo, these colours led me to my new mermaid set, what perfect colours for an underwater theme!  This card doubles as one DD's 9th birthday , which we will be celebrating on the 3rd of July.  With her personality I think the 4th of July would have been more appropriate!!

If you would like to play along, head over to Stacey's Stamping Stage and link your creation in with Mr Linky! Stacey will be awarding one creation with "The Lead" and 5 creations for the "Top 5 show stopper", qualifying to adorn your blog with the badges and share the news with all!!

As always, if you would like some inspiration to get you started with these colours you can head over to the Design Team members blogs to check out their impressive creations and our illustrious leader, Stacey, will have a beautiful creation to get you going too!
