A Island Indigo Calm - Piercing - Sketch. {PPA 104 & PP 57}

Well hi there everyone. This is going to be a super fast post. I needed a card for a elderly gentleman friend that is home from the hospital, and I thought... hmmmmm, maybe a brayer card which is super quick..
 I was simply rubbing different ink spots across a piece of glossy paper to see how the colors looked and soon I was making a sunset (without the sun}and then I just had to stamp a palm tree and a few flowers from upsy daisy to foreground.
 If I add a scrolled to the bottom (side if I alter it) this card would actually fit two challenges! I hope anyway. So added it to the side and let the Big Shot do the piercing.
I added the sketch details... well sideways anyway.. stamped a sentiment in Island Indigo from Friendly Phrases (love that font) and also a 3 teal rhinestones for some bling.
and if you look close the Top Note piercing was done by the Big Shot die and I hope it works for the PPA challenge.
 Gave my scene some water movement with a white gel pen...... and ta da!

So this will entered in the Pal Paper Arts 104 paper piercing challenge
even though the Big Shot did the piercing on my Top Note.
and The Paper Players #57 Nance's sketch challenge.  

Well I told you it was short! Hope you liked it, and even more, hope they qualify.
