Happy Thursday!!!

Today starts an all new Designer's Challenge on the MCT blog. It's a color/theme challenge this month. I used four of the colors and incorporated the flamingo. Hopefully, it has a "beachy" feel, that's what I was going for anyway.
I created the blue striped background piece with the Geo Borders Stamp Set and my MISTI. The polka dot's on the tag are from the Build a Banner Kit and the sentiment is from the Surf's Up Stamp Set.

Here is the challenge photo.
