CTD#251 - Thinking of You

Hi there! It's time for the Color Throwdown Challenge #251 and it's my turn as hostess to choose the colors and inspiration photo. I originally searched for ocean or beach colors thinking that they would be great colors for a summer time card or project, but in my search I found the photo below and really like the vivid blues and greens. I hope you'll take some time to play along with the challenge this week, we love to see what you create. 
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Beautiful Butterflies along with the coordinating butterfly die and the stamp set Bigger Blooms for my sentiment.
