MPS Design Call

Robyn at My Pink Stamper, has recently announced her next design team call for the next six months so I thought I'd give it a shot.

The guidelines were~
*You will need to have a blog that you regularly post on for at least 3 months.
*You cannot already be serving on a DT that has product that is a conflict of interest (most DTs are just fine as long as they do not sell product that is similar to My Pink Stamper Original Cricut Stamps idea)
*Your project must be made just for this challenge
*Post a pic on your blog with a full recipe along with what the challenge is about
*This needs to be a new project that you make just for this challenge
*Only one entry per person, please
*You do not need to be a professional but you must have a love for the craft.
Challenge: Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors...... 
Orange  Turquoise  Green  and Brown 
 After looking through my designer papers to find something using those colors I came across some 'On The Boardwalk' by Graphic 45.  Perfect colors!
Here is my recipe:
Cricut Summer Vacation Cartridge 
White Card Stock; Georgia Pacific  9" x 6 1/4"
Green 4 1/2" x 6 1/4"
Turquoise 4 1/4" x 6"
Mustard 4 1/8" x 5 7/8" 
Chocolate 4" x 5 3/4" card stock; Recollections
Designer Paper and tickets; Graphic 45
Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger 
Rhinestone brad; Stampin' Up!
Dimensionals; Recollections
White Uniball pen
Cut ferris wheel at 3" with mustard, cut again at 3 1/4" using green. Adhere together. 
Cut beach arrow at 2" with mustard, cut again at 2 1/4" with green.  Adhere together. 
Fold white card stock in half to create card base. Sponge all pieces using distress ink.
Layer in the following order.  Green, turquoise, mustard, chocolate then the designer paper.
Attach the Ferris Wheel using the rhinestone brad, the Beach Arrow is attached with dimensionals and the tickets then glued.
Add white dashes/dots.
Sit back and admire.
Thanks for stopping in.
