Live in the Present!

As we enter the new year most of us take stock of the recent past and sometimes make new year's resolutions.  My resolution is to "live in the present" as much as possible. 

I love this Just Right sentiment and it goes well with my resolution and this scenic card.

I started my scene by stamping Tilda - Key Largo and then masked her for the rest of the scene development.  I added Sutter stamps water G795, Art Impressions psalms, Coronado Island sailboat, and Stampscapes 302A Gulls.

Card Recipe:
Image: Tilda Key Largo, Stampscapes 302A Gulls, Sutter G795, Coronada Island sailboar, Art Impressions psalm trees, Just Right sentiment
Paper: Bazill Teal, GinaK Poolside, Black Glossy
Markers/Inks: Copics on Tilda, Adarondack Sandal, Ginger, Shell Pink, Stream, Stonewashed, Aqua, Sunshine Yellow, Printworks Ivey Green, Distress Tea Dye, White Gel Pen
Embellishments: Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Really Reasonable Ribbon, Starfish

Hop on over to the Creative Craft Challenge blog and check out all the great inspiration by the Design Team.  Our sponsor this week is of course, Crafty Ribbons.

That's a very sensible resolution Nancy and we could probably all do with taking a line.

I love your Hawaiian card conjures up warm summer days.
