Go Tropical

Yippee its Friday and no more French course apart from my exam which I am nervous about.

As summer is nearly here Shabneez our lovely host for this weeks challenge at Daring Cardmakers would like to you to "Go Tropical".  Shabneez would like to see bright colours, clashing patterns, tropical birds or flowers etc...

The team can not wait to see what you come up with.

I went with a few tropical palms and a flamingo on my card this week.

I used a die set from Spellbinders and Debbie Adams called Tropics Wild and Free.

The set comes with lots of dies including a flamingo, palms and a pineapple for making your summer themed cards.

I created a background for my card by using some inks blended together to look like a sunset or perhaps the beach and sky.

I then created a stencil using one of the tropical palms from the set and inked through the negative space.

I also added a few of the other tropical leaves from the set using a selection of papers and of course glitter card.  I cut my flamingo from pink card and added this to the bottom corner of my card.

I then finished my card with a stamped greeting and a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend.
