Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 110

Happy Saturday, blog peeps!  I've got just a quick post for you today - it's a card/CD Holder I created for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge 110.  Here's a look at the sketch:
And now for my full card:
I really do have the Hawaii theme on the brain...counting down the days til our summer vacation, I guess!  I've also been playing with the different flower combinations I can create from the Island Floral Bigz die. The center flower is from the Blossom Party die, however.  Here's a little bit of a brighter shot:
How about those leaves?  I used the Ornament punch and then ran it through the new Impressions Square Lattice embossing folder available in the SU! Summer Mini on May 1!  I also even stenciled it up a bit in the background, using the Kind Thoughts Brocade Stencil.  Wanna see the inside of the card?  Here it is:
More of the island theme carried into the card too!  These CD holders are fun to use - lots of things you can do with them! 

I've actually got to get going, so I'll catch up with you guys a bit later!  Have a great weekend! Thanks for visiting!
