Island Dreaming

Happy Sunday, Friends! This has been a great weekend after a very long & challenging work week for me. I will be glad to start afresh tomorrow after my retail therapy yesterday & today's creative therapy. This is one of the cards I made. I chose the colors for the card based upon the ColourQ challenge (CQC99) to use Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Indigo Island.
I grabbed my DCWV Mango Frost papers and cut down the main panel. It reminds me of Jamaica, thus the title of the card. I used my new Indigo Island ribbon from Stampin Up & some retired SU! felt flowers coupled with some Indigo Island cardstock Boho Blossoms punched flowers. For my sketch I chose the Clean & Simple's Fall to Layout 155 (FTL155).

As you can see, I let the papers do most of the 'talking' on this card. I hope you like it. Have a great Sunday!
