Aloha!! Let's start this week with a Hawaiian theme. Isn't this hula girl adorable?! This is one of In Style's digi images. I was going to add a banana tree to give it a more "beachy" look but I haven't put the one I drew in digi format yet. :( So I guess she would have to do with just the flip flops background. I know, this card would look much better with a palm tree. This card didn't come out the way I wanted it but what's done is done. I guess I am not really in the crafty mood when I was making it. Excuses, excuses... :)

Once again, this card is for a few challenges:
1. In Styles: Summer!
2. Pile It On: Two different ribbons
3. If the Shop Fits: TGIF color combo, blue, green and yellow
4.2RedBananas: the sketch
5. Card Positioning Systems: the sketch
6. Lily of the Valley #29: Summer Fun
7. Stampin' For the Weekend: going digital
8. Nutshells: Summer sunshine colors. This color is considered summer colors, right?
9. Creative Inspirations: using four different papers. I used seven different ones! Look closely.
10: One Stop Craft: Add some sparkle. I got some blings!

Stamps: In Style digi stamp, computer generated sentiment
Paper: Basic Studio 101, Bazill cardstock and unknown company
Embellishment: rhinestones, ribbons
Ink: Verda Magic chalk
Tools: scallop circle punch, circle punch, copic marker, Le Plume marker, Sakura glitter pen

What a little cutie! I love the layout and I can't believe how many challenges. I can see what you mean about the palm tree but it is still a gorgeous card and has really made me smile. The gems on the flip flops are a perfect touch :)

Thank you for joining us at stampin for the weekend and good luck with all those challenges.

Lovely card and wowie...what a lot of challenges combined!

Donna said...

It's a cute card Kim, I love how you've colored the little girl, yes I think a palm tree would have suited this card, but nonetheless it's great as it is, love all the bright green, blue and yellow that you used on it, really brightens the whole card up.
Thank you for participating in the "Stampin' for the Weekend" challenge this week.. Good luck and we hope you'll continue to join in on the challenges on a weekly basis. Have a lovely day.
