Designer Challenge - Color Palette

Today we are having a MCT Designer Challenge on the My Creative Time blog.  The challenge is to use the following photo inspiration & color palette.  I love this photo, so vibrant but I kinda struggled with these colors.  I don't know why but the first card I attempted to make was a disaster and I "flew" it into the garbage.  Ever have one of those days where you just cannot get your creative juices going??

Here is my card ~ I tried to keep with the same color shades but it's super hard when you print the picture, look at it on your computer and then add it to your blog. I swear it seems like I've seen 3 shades of each color ~ lol!! 

Lovin' the new stitched banner dies!!

My Creative Time Products Used:

Other Products Used:
Pattern Paper: Echo Park Paper ~ We are Family 
Cardstock: American Crafts
Sequins, Pearls & Enamel Dot

I hope you were inspired and will play along with us, we would LOVE to see what you create for this challenge. Visit My Creative Time blog to link up your project!
