Tropical Drink with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Good morning...I am getting in the mood for my upcoming tropical vacation.  I can't wait to have a frosty tropical drink in my hand on the beach!  I used a variety of products to create this sweet tropical drink card.  I tried a water color "splash" background, its kind of subtle but maybe that is a good thing.  I used a water color brush for the cherry.

Here's the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:


Tim Holtz Distress Oxides:  Squeezed Lemonade and Fired Brick
Tim Holtz Cocktail Blueprint stamp
Colorbox Black pigment ink/Judikins Black Detail embossing powder
glossy white and other card stock
Quick Quotes Sonata paper and Cool Grey Powderpuff chalking ink
Our Daily Bread Designs pierced circle die
washi tape
water color pen and spray bottle

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:
