Laura's Sketch #10

I really liked Laura's sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You. It's very basic, so it allowed me to play with it a bit. I'd been itching to use my new Hawaii Papaya paper from Stampin' Up, so I pulled it out for this sketch. I'm not a big fan of orange, but I'm really loving Tangerine Tango paired with Chocolate Chip. I used a retired SU punch since the flowers matched so well with the pattern on the dp. Some ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware, Dew Drops, and buttons finish it off.

Stamps: Trees, Birds, and Messages (Hero Arts)
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Hawaii Papaya dp (SU)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: spring bouquet punch (SU), large oval punch, Aged Copper Hodgepodge Hardware, buttons (Oriental Trading Co.), ribbon (Dollar Tree), Dew Drops (Robin's Nest)
