Here's my take on the sketch...
I followed the sketch and the photo on this design!  That photo looked like a fun beach party so I had to go "tropical paradise" today!  

I created a "sunset" background layering two blue Zig Zag Stitched Circles and topping them with the ymmy new Pineapple Paradise Pineapple!

A pretty flower - from the Funky Wreath Spring Addition - I think this one looks like a hibiscus don't you? 
I love the font for the sentiments in this set.  I stamped this one on a Stitched Flag die.

I broke up the two busy pattern papers with a solid strip of card stock.  The bitty green border was cut with a Pretty Pink Posh stitched border die  I think the stitching on all the elements helps bring it together. 
The solid matt for the pineapple also helps break up the pattern papers.  The finishing touch?  Some bling!  A sprinkle of clear sequins does the trick!
