Hey girl...

Good morning!

Things have been heating up in my neck of the woods so a lot of free time has been spent chillaxin' in the water just trying to keep cool. Makes me wish for a tropical oasis to escape to but since I don't see that happening any time soon I guess I'll just have to live vicariously through my stamps, LOL! Tropical Piper from Some Odd Girl fit my mood perfectly so I printed her out and got down to coloring this island beauty. I also had fun getting creative with a watercolor background using an old Heidi Swapp mask that I've had in my stash for years. The flowers were too perfect a match not to use with Piper and it was a great challenge to match the Copics I used to the Distress inks in the background. I'm so pleased with how this card came together that I'm going to enter it into the current SOG Facebook challenge, "Anything Odd Goes". 

Have a good one everybody!  :)
