Tropical Chic

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Hope your week is going well.
My husband started his new job this week and all seems to be going well.
It's kinda quiet without him being here but as you can see I have been able to get crafting time in again! Love him dearly but I have SO missed my crafting time!

Today I checked out the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge and played along!
I am trying to get back into it so hopefully this is a good start!

Here is the sketch & my sample...

I started out by pulling out this awesome stamp set called Tropical Chic.
It came out last year along with the coordinating Thinlits & DSP.
I used it a good bit last summer then it seemed to fall off my radar until today!
I told you I seem to be dreaming about the beach and anything tropical the last few weeks! LOL

My cardbase was cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.
I added my panel of Tropical Escape DSP and a small strip down the one side. Next I stamped my palm image and the blossom and diecut them. I used a Stitched Oval and stamped my sentiment in Shaded Spruce (LOVE THIS COLOR!) and layered it onto a Shaded Spruce Scalloped Oval.
I added my diecut palm & blossom with Dimensionals onto the Oval sentiment panel.
I added the little flagged strip to the right side and all the little Granny Apple Green Glittered Enamel Dots and finished this up!
