Guest Designer for Playing In Paradise Challenge 102

Hi!

(This is my second post of the day for my Paper Sweeties Sketch Challenge Post Click here)


I was fortunate enough to win another challenge at  Playing in Paradise, and I was asked to be a guest designer again. Yay! This week comes with a sketch challenge! 
I started with a pink card base and I applied my pieced patterned papers to the card front following the prompts from the sketch. A few zig zag borders were added to represent the "ocean". I stamped and fussy cut my whale from Hero Arts Oceans of Joy stamp set. I used a heart patterned paper and colored the flowers in with Copic Markers. The sentiment comes from the same set.
A pink zig zag ribbon border was added to the top for an embellishing touch. Lastly a length of pink organza ribbon was tied vertically around the card front and tied off in a fussy bow embellished with an Aqua button from DeNami Designs

Here is your Inspirational Sketch! I hope you will join in the fun and play along! 
 I hope you have a fantastic day!
~Tammy~
