Guess What!  It's Wednesday, a Diva Challenge day again!  This week we've got an awesome sketch challenge for you.  I decided to break out my Extreme Surfboard and Extreme Elements sets for this card.  I also joined a color challenge on Color Throwdown last week.  The colors were Tangerine Tango, Old Olive and Daffodil Deilght.  

My surfer dude is embossed in black on white cardstock then sponged over with the challenge colors and a dauber.  My background Top Note is my version of homemade designer paper (a challenge I recall seeing somewhere) and the tangerine strip is crimped then attached with jumbo silver brads.  Hope you like it!  

I'm away from home again, visiting my parents and sister with her two little girls and my Aunt for the week.  It is our last hurrah before school starts a week from today.  I've got one kiddo ready to get back to school and one who is not!  I'm ready for a consistent (stamping) routine, but not ready for homework and early mornings.  

Anyway, see you with something new next week for sure if not earlier.  Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!

PS- Don't forget to go check out the Diva challenge!
