Happy Friday! TGIFC168

It’s Friday and time for a Sketch Challenge with the TGIFC! The Sea of Textures Bundle was one of my first purchases from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  I hadn’t used the bundle yet, and when I saw the sketch, my mind immediately went to the images from the stamp set.  It is a fun bundle to play with and I look forward to using it on future creations!

The color combination was inspired by the Tranquil Texture Designer Series Paper. The mixture of Regal and Subtle Colors is pleasing to the eyes.  I don’t think I will ever tire of this combination!

The die cut net is so fun to incorporate into your creations, I can definitely see this being used on one of my scrapbook pages in the near future. The sand dollar die cuts are to “die” for, it makes me long for a beach!
