Tuesday Morning Sketch #114

Hooray it's Tuesday, time for another great sketch challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches. This weeks interesting sketch was designed  by the wonderful Melissa. Grab some papers and play along with us. This weeks sponsor is One Stop Card Crafts.



Isn't this a fun sketch? I rotated the sketch to the right to design my card.


The coconut fronds are in place of the flowers on Melissa's sketch. The mini vacation retreat was stamped with Stampscape stamps and colored with dye inks. The coconut tree was stamped with an Autumn Leaves stamp set and colored with Copic markers. The shaped card and circle were cut with a Nestability die. The rhinestone flourish swirl is from Michaels.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and our very own Theresa is a 4 year cancer survivor and is celebrating her birthday on October 6. Please stop by and wish her a Happy Birthday and leave her lots of love.


Please be sure to check out the fabulous DT cards.
