Cool Caribbean comes out to play

I {heart} Cool Caribbean cardstock from Stampin Up, and I was really sad when it retired. I have a couple of packs, but I am always scared to use it because I don't want it to be gone forever. Today, for Lauren's sketch challenge, I decided to pull some out of retirement.



This is the great sketch we had to work with. I have lots of ideas for this sketch, but I only had time to pull off one card.




Remember that the sketch is just a starting point for inspiration, and you don't have to follow it exactly.

This image was coloured using my SU markers, and Julie Buhler's technique on watercolour paper.

Please grab your stamps, and join in!

Here is what the rest of the sketch team made this week:

Lauren Meader
Maria Levine
Dawn Easton
Kirsten Dubosque
Kristy Vernon
Kim Gasper
MacKenzie Bruckler
Alicia Weimen
Kendra Wisenbaker
