Go to your happy place/PS Sparks Designer Draft challenge April 2013

Hello my lovelies! It's been almost a week since I last posted. I apparently misplaced my mojo, but never fear. I found it hiding under the pile of paper, stamps, embellies, etc. that were piled on my craft desk! Once I cleaned everything off and put things in their place, I was once again able to create! LOL! This card I made for the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge: Designer Draft:

and the inside:

Here is the sketch this is based loosely on:

I'm so ready for my annual girls week trip at the beach that I just HAD to use the Get Outta Town set for this card! LOL! Plus I also have a wreath on my back door made of silk hibiscus flowers so it was a no brainer! Pretty simple set up: I stamped the flower in 3 coordinating papers (recent winnings from the Create blog from Northridge Publishing. Thanks NP!), fussy cut and adhered to the Hexilong panel. It might be hard to see but I sponged some Broken China Distress ink on the white panel (with the die still in place so I got a white border around it!) The middle flower is popped up with a foam square. The inside was put together pretty simply. Stamped the sentiment. Stamped the flower again, fussy cut and adhered to the lower right corner. Done! Oh! I forgot to say that I used Smooch in Sundance to color the stamens. Ok. Now done!

Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for another post shortly! I hope that you have a wonderful evening and stay crafty my friends!
