Fun in the Sun

This is a card I just finished for my granddaughter’s birthday that’s coming up the end of the month.  She and her mother went with us last year to Florida (we live in Montana) in March for our oldest granddaughter’s wedding.   This was her first taste of Florida and she thought Florida was the berries (if she only knew).   Once the Summer Memories came out I knew I had to use one of them for Sydnee’s card.
Once I had Flip-flop Tilda and the background stamp I knew I needed a palm tree so then the search began.   When I found the Hawaii Palm Tree I was thrilled so off to the shopping cart it went, once it was ordered it was shipped to me in record time.   Now I needed a shell or starfish or something to add to the card.   So out came Edwin in Miami, I printed the starfish, colored it and cut it out and it was perfect.
Isn’t she a doll!   My beautiful granddaughter loves flip flops and she has as much hair as this little Tilda.
Here’s a view of this wonderful palm tree, I did have to cut down the sand  base to fit the card but that was to only thing I had to do.
Last but not least here is the bottom of the card.   I used some gauze to look like nets and here is where you can see the star fish.   I popped Tilda, the palm tree and the star fish to give it more dimension.

I had more fun making this card so I hope you enjoy it also, thanks for stopping by.   Hope this is a great week for everyone.

  5. O goodness girl! This is incredible!!!! Your masking is top notch!! and your coloring...well top notch too! Gotta love Tilda with flip flops (i agree with Syndee, nothing's better than flip flops). Your netting, your palm tree....I just love this!!! I'm not sure what a perfect card looks like but I'm pretty sure if this isn't it, it's the closest thing to it.

  6. Your granddaughter will love this card and it will bring back so many good memories. Nicely done!
