Happy colors

First, THANK YOU ALL for commenting on my last card, totally made my day! I was totally unhappy with that card. SO, my sister's friend requested a handmade birthday card, the only thing she wanted was BRIGHT colors! you heard me, bright!! which is something I didnt play with for a while, I have been wanting to make a card using the beautiful Hawaiin Shores, so I thought to myself, here is a chance to try something different, if it turned out ok, well and fine, if not, you can always make another one!. Guess what? I am totally happy with the result,  I ENJOYED making this card, in fact I am going to say goodbye to "vintage" for a while, coz I had lots of fun playing with happy fun colors and isn't that cupcake the most adorable thing or what!!?, such a beautiful stamp set. 
My cards is heavily inspired from Dawn Macvey's card. I used Hawaiin Shores as a base for the card, layered it with Summer sunrises with a lill dash of Raspberry Fizz, I AM IN LOVE!, Thank you Dawn for this beautiful card!

Thanks for Lookin!

Vintage Card

I wanted to create a vintage card and use Raspberry Fizz at the same time, this is what I came with, I added smoky shadow and a dark chocolate button in the mix because I don't have black buttons and I wanted a dark button, for me the card looks fine and even pretty, what do you think? does anything look out of place?

Stamps: Giga Guidlines, Turning New Leaf, PDB II.
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Smoky Shadow, Ranger Tea Dye (distressing)
Cardstock: Vintage Cream, Spring Moss.
Others: Sweet Blush Ribbon, Dark Chocolate Button.
