Debossed Garden Pool Party

Hope that you're staying cool...our Arizona summer heat is here, which means lots of swimming and air-conditioning.Unfortunately, I'm a little short on the air-conditioning today. Our air-conditioner stopped working last night, so I guess we'll be doing more swimming today in order to stay cool. Temps are supposed to reach around 110 degress. Yikes!! We've got someone working on it today, so hopefully it will be up and running soon. It's a little warm, to say the least. These kinds of things definitely make you thankful that someone invented the air-conditioner!
This little card popped into my mind the other night, but I had to wait until the next day to create it. While visiting Splitcoast Stampers, I discovered that this card actually is very similar to this week's Sketch Challenge. The two new In-Colors, Pool Party and Calypso Coral, are great together, especially with the Whisper White background. The daisy is a SU bulk buy leftover...I didn't have any of the Paper Daisy embellisments, but they would look great on this card. I brayered over the debossed side of the Flower Garden impression with Pool Party which makes the white Flower Garden impression pop.
Thanks for letting me share!
