If you haven't joined us over at this facebook group create a smile friends & family make sure you do because there is lots going on there.
I am addicted to sketch challenges so when I saw the sketch Birka created for us over at the facebook group I simply had to play along.
I started with a white topfolded card and sponged the background with distress ink and the stencil from the Beach Party kit. Did some diecutting with the cool cuts stacked pierced banners out of the patterned paper and some vellum.
Adhered these banners onto the card and diecut the palm tree. Stamped that little friend and copic colored it. Some fuzzy cutting and paper piecing and adhered him to the card. Gave the tree some Coconuts with sequins. For the bubbles I used the clear droplets and to finish of the card placed two little banners at the side and did the sentiment with stickers and stamping.
Gave the glasses a realistic look with some glossy accents.

If you get stuck in your creativity try a sketch sometimes it will get you in the right mood.
To keep your card balanced it sometimes helps to use one color and a pop of another color like i did in this card.
Please join in the fun over at our facebook group and try this sketch you have until may 31th to play along we love to see what you come up with.
Have a great week;
