Do You Like Pina Coladas?...

Whew, what a week! Things are really flying at work, busy, busy, busy, but good busy, really getting things accomplished, projects finished, files archived, etc. Just glad summer office hours give me Fridays off!
And to start my extended weekend with a bang, I made this nifty card for hubby, a kind of teaser leading up to our dream vacation in Cozumel.
That great digi-image is from Hambo Stamps, called Three Ties digi-image. It comes with three different ties, but I chose the tropical one to color and make this card. I colored it with Copics: E00; Y15,17; B2,4,12; G00,21,94 & BG15. I added texture by crimping some of my background paper and shine with Yellow, Waterfall & Crystal Stickles, as well as Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. I embellished my card with leftover vacation stickers from my stash.
I've entered this card into the Hambo Hoedown #19, which asks for the use of a Hambo image PLUS a sketch, which you can find HERE. Hop on over to the hoedown for the challenge guidelines--everyone who plays is a winner!
