CAS[E] this Sketch #173

Channeling my inner-tropical-island-girl this week for N@ Ali's fun sketch:


A few leaves from MFT did the trick for my tropical theme for Sketch #173:

Sentiments compliments of my new Stamplorations set from Deepti Malik!!
Inside:  '... is to see your smile!'
 
If I'm successful, you wouldn't even know I'd never visited the Tropics!  Something I aim to remedy ONE DAY!!!

You will have fun tripping through the design team cards - always a pleasure!  Thanks for scheduling a lay-over here!! xx

Super card for the challenge, Michele! Love the "lush tropical greenery" and I'm sure that one day soon you'll see the real things in their natural settings - maybe even fanning over you as you lay back in a lounger poolside? ;-)

Does the Caribbean count as the tropics? If so, I've been. Very nice, but been there, done that.... All I want is to go everywhere and see everyone. Yeah...that'll happen.... LOVE the greens you've chose for these leaves/fronds. The watercolored background is perfection. Beautiful card. Have a good weekend my friend. Bev

Terrifically tropical, Michele ... I'm imagining pushing aside those yummy leafy fronds to reveal the jungle path leading down to the beautiful beach! I can dream!! Hugs, Anita :)
