Tropical Summer

Good Monday Morning!

Today's card is a Tropical Vacation!  (don't I wish!)

I used the Sketch from the #189 Challenge at MFT.

I will also be entering my card into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Summer and the Curtain Call  Challenge, Tropical Trip.
And here is my card:
I used the stamp set, Beach Life, from Flourishes.  The Designer Papers are from Echo Park, A Perfect Summer.....aren't they all?  Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped Circle Dies, Die-Namics Mini Tabs Foursome, from MFT, and a Corner Tab punch.  Adhesive Rhinestones, a little bit of Stickles for the beach sand and some small brown beads glued on the palm trees as coconuts.  Ahhhh can you smell the salty air, do you feel that cool refreshing breeze?  May all your summer days be like this!  The ribbon was white and I colored it with an Orange Copic Marker.  I also made a matching envelope, may be making more of these for my cards, they are quite a lovely accent!
Enjoy The Sunshine!


  1. I could certainly use a summer day like this! It's quite lovely! I can feel the warm ocean breeze. Great card!

  2. Oh, yeah; I can feel those soft, warm tropical breezes --sigh-- Love the card.

  3. I would love to be laying on that hammock right about now! I feel so out of touch with everyone as of late...and hope to get back to stamping and blog hopping more regularly! Great job with this card's really cute and well done!

  5. Really, really great take on the sketch. Love the breezes and soft sand - take me away to there, please. (Wasn't that a great sentence?) I just love this card - your layering is perfect. And then, of course, there's that envie. Great idea to start including them in your photo - points for you my dear!!!

  6. Beautiful summer card and envelope set. Yes, the days of summer are fast fleeting away and soon we will be into the fall days. I love that season as well.
