Sketch Frenzy Friday--A Little Late

Hello!
Yes it's Saturday, and yes I am a day late and a dollar short, as my mother used to say, posting my Sketch Frenzy Friday card. I was having issues with blogger and my computer on Thursday and Friday and didn't get it posted. I get frustrated when that happens, and I think it just makes it worse because my patience wears thin and then it seems to take twice as long to do anything.

And I also used Chocolate Chip for the coconut drink. I stamped some flowers and cut them out, and also cut out two palm leaves from the DSP and I couldn't resist adding a strip of Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon at the bottom. What do you think of the diagonal placement? I also decorated the inside of the card:
