This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 337 and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 327 - Vanilla Chocolate Olives. I thought doing a SC last night I could just get up this morning and go to work but NO not me. My brain cells must have gotten fried in Boston, or when I fell in Boston bc I picked up the wrong dp Tuesday for the CC and again last night then this morning realized I did not truely follow the sketch. GGGRRRR so in an attempt to redeem myself here you go.
I stamped this fabulous relaxing beach scene in adirondack espress ink then colored with copics trimmed, matted and popped it up on dimensionals. My choc chip base is embossed with Shell Collage embossing folder from cuttlebug that I had to have and never have used. I flipped the sketch and my focal image is so large that is hard to see the shell. I used some OLD OLIVE Pattern paper for panel 2 and for paper piecing the beach umbrella. I used a stamp set called "OCEAN PARADISE" from SWEET N SASSY STAMPS.
Now I can go to work with my head held hi. LOL. Sorry Vicki & Korin. Anybody got an extra "get out of jail free" card just in case I need it?

Oh dear, oh dear Neva - what a dilema! love the striped DP on this and the paper pieced out of the box cut umbrella! A lovely card for both challenges! You were in Boston and you didn't let me know?!?!?!
