{sneak peek!} of Tropical Party and a 2S4Y challenge

Happy Friday, blog peeps!  Boy oh boy did this week fly by!  I got some super cute SU! Summer Mini sneak peek goodies in the mail the other day and decided to put them to use for this week's 2S4Y Challenge #50.  Here's what the sketch looks like:
I liked the idea of doing a long and skinny card.  I loved the nice and simple lines of the sketch and thought I would add a big splash of color with the Island Oasis DSP.  Here's a full view of the card I created:
I created a "ribbon" element with the Pinking Hearts Border punch, and I layered a piece of embossed cardstock using the new embossing folder called Impressions Square Lattice, which is also in the upcoming summer mini!  Are you wondering how I got it 2 toned?  Well, after embossing, I brayered over it in Old Olive, and viola!  Now, for the adorable stamps - that's from the new set called  Tropical Party.  These stamps and papers remind me of summer and are totally getting me excited for our trip to Kauai!  Here's one more snapshot of the card, just a tad closer up:
Are you excited about these summer mini products?!!  They'll be available from Stampin'Up! starting on May 1st!  Here's a recipe for this card:
