Ride the Big Wave



Hi all! It's Friday (whoo-hoo!) and that means it's time for another OCL DT Sketch. I'm so excited, today's sketch happens to be based on this card that I made last year. The matted main panel is up on foam tape. I added some Waterfall Stickles to the water, and Orange Peel Stickles on Kona's surfboard and the flowers on his shorts.

Here's the sketch...



Hope you all have a fantastic day! I'm headed down to Wildwood, NJ today to check out some rentals for our vacation this summer....whooo-hooo, road trip!
