Playing In Paradise #77

Happy Friday everyone, Whoo hoo I have reached 50 followers on my blog, how exciting is that.. well maybe not so much for you but that made my day. I am still on my vacation but I did manage to get a little craft time in with my sister to get a few cards made.
It is time for a new Playing in Paradise challenge; Allison has a wonderful sketch as our inspiration this week.
I sure struggled with my card though, inspiration was quick but getting it all glued together and where I wanted it was a totally different story.  Don’t get me started on my questionable photo J.
I love this beautiful designer paper that I snagged from my sisters stash.  I created the card base, added a layer of DP, then punched the top section and added a strip of DP.  The part I struggled with is where a focal image should be, I tried a good dozen things before I just used a textured piece of cardstock and added a layered sentiment on top. I finished with this fantastic button, again from a secret stash and some embroidery thread.
Supplies: Natural White and navy cardstock, Designer Paper - Indie Chic , misc button and punch, embroidery thread.
Stop by the Scrapbooker's Paradise Blog to see what the challenge team has posted for Playing in Paradise #77, join in the fun and you could win a prize.
Sorry I have not been doing much in the way of commenting, I will sit down and catch up once I am back home.
