Mixing Mediums, La La Land Stamp

I decided to try mixing my mediums with this image. I wanted it to have a very summery feel but wanted to have a very soft effect for the background so I pulled out my pastels. Everything else is colored up with my copics. I will list the color combos below- its a lot.  I will post it again after I have smacked it onto a card for some challenges. That will have to be later, this took forever !

(oops, I got a little crazy with my grass flicks by the guitar)

- That should be most of them.
I used 2 blue pastles, 3 shades of yellow, and a green just to edge the bottom part of the card.  I didnt want white edges but I didnt want to ink it either.

Here's the card. 

I don't know why the sentiment is hard to read in the pic, it says "you are my sunshine". It's fussy cut from My Minds Eye paper. I covered it with glossy accents, I guess its reflecting the light. The tag is actually from my sons new pants- from the Vans Store, and I saved it. It came in handy. The hombre paper the image is mounted on is from American Crafts, Color Crush, and the birds are cut from another paper in the pad. The background paper I have had for so long I don't remember where it is from , it was just a single in my stash. I have a lot of those. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges :

7 Kids College Fund- ATG
Cute Card Thursday- For the Birds
