Colour Q Challenge

I decided to have a go at a new challenge. It's Colour Q Challenge and the clue is in the name.  You follow a colour scheme set by the challenge team.  I find this quite a difficult one as sometimes you get an idea in your head and then it's not easy to fit the colours into it and so you may have to rethink the whole thing.  However I've done it and here's my entry and I've enjoyed the mental stimulation to come up with an idea.
Now I don't have anymore brilliant blue cardstock so I've substituted it for pacific point to go along with the bashful blue, poppy parade, tempting turquoise and whisper white. My big shot was used to get the polka dot background behind my beach huts and the scallop border punch adds some waves!  I used my white gel pen to add some stripes and the sentiment is from Curly Cute, a great sentiment set.  Living not to far from some historical victorian seaside resorts I couldn't resist the beach hut theme.
Thanks for checking in and all the lovely comments you leave on my blog.
Have a great week.
