SSSC74......Let's Celebrate!

GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!!! My favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

Here is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week, based on my card, see it HERE!

So onto today's card, I have to admit that I was slow to get on board with this fun set from the summer mini, "Tropical Party". Also the DS paper "Island Oasis", can't say why I waited soooo long to get them, but both are awesome!!! Sorry about my picture quality, I am having lighting issues!!! LOL!!

I started the card with a base of rose red, and then followed that with some old olive that was embosses with the Square Lattice EF.

I used two colors of designs from the paper pack, and matted each with more rose red card stock. I then went to work on my main image panel. I stamped the coconut drink onto whisper white with chocolate chip ink and I also stamped the tree with chocolate chip ink. I then stamped the tree again onto scrap white with old olive, and cut out just the top and mounted it over the other with some foam tape. I then stamped the coconut drink onto some little bits of the DS paper and cut out the umbrella and straw and glued them directly over the stamped image on the base.

I stamped the leaves twice and cut out and stamped the large flower with rose red and cut it out. I added a turquoise brad to the flower center and mounted it to the base with more foam tape. I then took the leaves and slid them in under the flower to cover the base of the tree and coconut drink bottom.

The sentiment comes from the "On your birthday" stamp set and was stamped with black stazon. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get it straight. I then matted this piece with more rose red and mounted it to the base with foam tape.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
