Quick Quotes Friday Challenge #12

Friday Challenge #12
It's a Sketch!
We thought it would be fun to have a sketch challenge!  What do you think? 

Our friend Liz Qualman was so sweet and shared her lovely inspirational sketch with us for this challenge.

I got to work with the delicious new line Summer Samba, and the new embellishments (Chipboard and Frosted Dragonfly), and one of the fun new ink colors (Lemonade)
 I am in love with the cute little flip flops Chipboard...what fun they are to alter!! I inked the edges with the *new* color ink, lemonade!
 I would love to have a pair of these for real :)
 This is one of the *new* Frosted embellishments, I added some of the Lemonade ink to it to help it stand out a bit.
 When I do some fussy cutting I love to have it stand out a bit from the background, I did it with these flowers by cutting into the flowers and bending them a little away from the background.  You could also add some foam adhesive spots to get some dimension.
