Bloggers Challenge-Color Challenge

For my card today, we are to use the colors Blue, Orange and Moss....my Moss took a bright twist to go with a tropical theme for my card.  I also squeezed in a color challenge for Verve's Beach Party and the Free 4 All challenge at SCS which is a Vacation theme.
Version Two:

When I got married we went to Hawaii for our Honeymoon.  I am closing my eyes and feeling the warm breeze, feeling the sun on my face and hearing the waves crashing against the shore.........
  I used my brayer and Taken with Teal and Green Galore Inks and made a Sunburst Card (Technique Junkies oldie but Goodie!).......  on the top card, I developed a streak, so ran the brayer up and down and so it is not a Sunburst BG after all.....but I still liked the color.....  I colored the flowers with Copic Markers ( "0", YR000, Yr00, YR02, YR07, W3, B02, YG00, YG63).  On the butterfly, I colored with Copics, then painted over the color with Angel Wings Shimmerz.  I used a distressing tool for the BG of the sentiment, and sponged Taken with Teal on the edge. 
Stamps are from Firecracker Designs by Pamela- Happy Hour and Forgive Me (sentiment) plus the butterfly
I did not cut out a thing (other than the leaves)- check this out
Shimmerz also from FCD
