Cutest summer card EVER!

I made this card for a challenge over at Bugaboo but I really made it for my mom.  When I saw the inspiration cards made by their DT and saw this piggy image I just had to have it!  Usually if I am going to join a challenge I wont use the exact same digis that are used for inspiration but this one.... well my mom loves pigs and she loves the beach and its just too stinkin cute! I mean, come on! Now I know my mom follows my blog but she better act surprised when she gets this card in the mail anyway!!

(her favorite color is purple)

why does it always look like it needs to be blended out more after you take a pic?? grr.  
I used Glossy accents on the pig's glasses, the ant, beach ball, and the monkeys eyes.  I also used Wink of Stella on the sunglasses and Spicas on the umbrella, its not showing up in the picture.  I am not listing all of my color combos, there are too many, but if you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment or send me a message.

I am entering this card into a few challenges but for now I am heading to the pool! After coloring up this image I just have to enjoy some sun before the summer is over.  I will update with a list of challenges below when I get back.

Update, challenges listed here:
Bugaboo Stamps- Photo Inspiration
