Ocean's 11 Sky challenge

I'm trying to get caught up on some of the Ocean's 11 challenges, one of two blogger's groups to which I belong, listed on the right. What a talented bunch of stampers! Please check out their work on their blogs.
  For this challenge we had to incorporate the sky somehow into our card, so here is my sky. I had some beautiful DP that I wanted to use but it is very bright and I had difficulty matching up the yellow. I only HAVE six or seven different shades of yellow, you'd think something would match. 
  I followed a sky tutorial from Mothermark's blog. She originated the idea. Basically you cut a template using scalloped scissors for your cloud shape, choose a blue inkpad and sponge and go for it. 
  Thanks for looking.
Stamps: Stampin Up Winged Things, PTI Life
Cardstock: SU Pink, Orange and Yellow, DP unknown, vellum, PTI white
Ink: Black, Melon Kaleidacolor (Life sentiment), Bashful Blue, Baja Blue
Accessories: Martha Stewart lace border punch, Fiskars threading water punch, ciao copics, black pen, SU pink GG ribbon, satin ribbon from Mike's
