Life is Good



This might be the longest Sketch Challenge card I've ever worked on, LOL! I started it yesterday for the SCS Sketch, and after many interruptions finally finished it this a.m. The beachy stamps, DP, Prism papers, and the sticker on the inside are all from Taylored Expressions. See the product links in the supply list below.

The main image is up on foam tape. It was stamped in black craft ink and heat embossed with clear EP before being watercolored. Orange glitter was added to the top of cuppie's head, and Platinum stickles were added to the sand and the dots on the castle.

Here's the inside where I used a sticker from the Beach Bum Key Ingredients kit:
