SCS Challenge - Sketch Challenge 179

Here's my entry into today's sketch challenge. I normally don't care for sketch challenges but this one was okay. I had a no good, very bad day, so the sentiment on this card is particularly fitting I think.

I did something on this card which I rarely do - I stamped on the patterned paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I actually like the subtle effect it gives in the background. The margarita and sentiment stamps are from Amuse Artstamps. I just love their stamps!

I'm also really grooving to this Tart and Tangy set by SU!. It took me a while to finally commit to buying it but its just so cute. Plus, this particular stamp is versatile - it can be a lime, an orange, a lemon -even a grapefruit if you want with a simple change in ink colours.

Supplies: Paper (SU!, Deja Views, PTI), Ink (SU!, Versa), ribbon, Prima flower, Dew Drop, clear embossing powder, Stamps (SU!, Amuse Artstamps)
