Stampin' Up! Tropical Oasis Get Well for the Thursday Inkin' Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post. Here's the sketch...

and here is what I made for it...

I was commissioned to create a masculine get well card and the Early Espresso and Pool Party colors worked well, I think. Plus you can't beat the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper. My card base is Early Espresso. I cut a piece of Early Espresso slightly smaller than the base and embossed it with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.

The mat and sentiment banner were cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangle die. I used my paper snips to cut the swallowtail end. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings Stamp Set.

I'm entering my card at The Sisterhood of Crafters: Patterned Paper Challenge and Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Here's the inside...

The sentiment is from the Healing Hugs Stamp Set. The palm trees are from the Timeless Tropical Stamp Set. I didn't even have a chance to stage the card as it flew right out of the craft room!
