Sweet Stop Sketch 113

It's our Sketch with a Spin Week over on the Sweet Stop Blog. This month's "spin" is to make a circle card. Hop on over to the blog to check out the sketch...it's a cool one!



For my card, I used OCL's Sandy Sunsets. The palm tree was stamped in onyx black, I kept the die in place and sponged Tangerine Tango all around the square, and then matted it against the black CS. Pretty simple card...and I made it SUPER bright orange using some Penny Black Mix & Match CS.

Enjoy your weekend!
