PCC372 Sketch Challenge with Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical again!

Hello and Happy Wednesday!  I'm half way through the work week so that's a super big Woo Hoo!

Paper Craft Crew has another fun sketch up for you to try out this week!

Are you tired of my obsession with Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical yet?  I can't seem to get enough of it!  This time I used the Palm Trees along with the coordinating dies for them as well as the additional leaves and flowers.

The background was cut using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies with one of the Follow Your Art DSP sheets.  I thought the pattern and the beautiful coastal cabana had the "beachy" feel I was going for.  I matted that layer with a thin layer of Early Espresso Cardstock.  I used the second from the largest of the Stitched Shapes Squares for my Whisper White to back the trees.  I also used a thin matt of Early Espresso on the stitched square.  To stamp the Palm Trees on a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock, I used my Stamparatus Stamping Platform along with Stampin' Write Markers in Garden Green, Mossy Meadow, and Soft Suede.  I used the same markers on the sentiment from Label Me Bold Stamp Set.  To split the Happy Birthday into two seperate sentiments, I used the side of my marker just past the word and used a scrap of paper to make sure the edge was fairly straight.   I fussy cut the seperate sentiments out ... luckily it is just straight lines so really easy! So did you happen to nice that little bit of grass at the bottom of my diamond??  Well I couldn't let my palm trees just hang out there without ground or grass so I used the new Special Days Dies to cut a little sliver of grass in Garden Green Cardstock.  Once I had the grass cut I used the same stitched square to stitch the sides so it would fit right into the corner.  

Here's the inside of my card...

I kept the inside super simple by adding the rest and relax sentiment from Timeless Tropical along with three of the flowers from the coordinating dies.
