Over the Rainbow Challenge

Not having participated in any sort of challenge in quite some time, I took it upon myself to break out and give it a shot.
Nichole Heady of Papertreyink is issuing a color challenge today. Ripe Avocado, Ocean Tides, Summer Sunrise, and Pure Poppy. I like these colors together very much so I gave it a whirl. I only had a half hour to dedicate to this project, so it's quite simple...nothing elaborate. As I haven't been in my studio much lately, it was a terrible mess and I couldn't find my Summer Sunrise and Pure Poppy CS, so I substituted with Real Red and Marigold Morning, both of which were within reach and readily available.
Paper: Ocean tides, ripe avocado, and white CS (PTI), pure red and marigold morning CS (SU)
Stamps: Images and sentiment (PTI), background (CHF)
Ink: Ocean tides, ripe avocado (PTI), pure red, marigold morning, chocolate chip (SU), black (Ranger), Versamark ink (Tsukineko)
Accessories: white EP (Sprinkle and Sparkle), pop dots.
