Aloha!



Yay, I had time to play in today's SC235 Sketch challenge ON the actual challenge morning...whoo-hoo! I thought the small images from my Life's a Beach set would work well with the circle elements in the sketch. The colors are from today's Color Throwdown challenge.

The tag and the large Guava square panel are up on foam tape. Clear Tiny Twinkles were added to the centers of all the flowers, the ones on the inside of the card too. Sponging was done with Soft Sky ink.

That's it for today, short and sweet! Have a GREAT day!
