Destination Happiness

I made this card for a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers called Unity Lovefest 2013H.  I own soooo many Unity Stamps and I love them so I thought, "I need to start entering some challenge using these wonderful stamps!."  So here is my submission.  You had to use an inspiration photo and 4 colors.  Rust, aqua, brown and beige.  Easy enough!  Oh and you can win a bunch of itty bitty stamps.  I used one here called destination happiness.

Details for this card are as follows:  Stamps Unity itty bitty destination happiness, DP SOHO Garden American Crafts, MME Traveler, Farm House Market Square.  Die-namics snow drifts, memory box dies Tall Birch and Set of Swings, fiskars cloud punch, MS Hydrangea punch, Diamond Dots Stampendous.
