Freshly Made Sketches # 138

Jen T at Freshly Made Sketches hit it on the head with this simple sketch that she says leaves plenty of room to play! The possibilities are endless. Here's the sketch:

So, in the interest of play, I immediately thought of my sister who I haven't seen in a while. We are definitely due for some fun in the sun along with some sweet, fruity summer drinks! We will have to make that happen, pronto folks. I chose a cute stamp set from Hero Arts that has fun in the sun all over it. I used the palm tree (double stamped and popped up) and the cocktail along with the sentiment "Let's Chill". I added a bit of glaze to the leaves and the drinks. Can I get a woop, woop! The white paper is Neenah Solar White, the checkered paper is Recollections. I stamped everything with Memento and colored with Copics. See here:

All that's missing is the umbrella! This is one card that will NOT go to the card graveyard. See you soon Sister!
