Tropical Hello

Is it hot where you are?  It's been in the 90's here in NE Ohio, more August weather than July.  Thought these citrus flowers and ocean background would make us all feel a bit cooler - I'm imagining I'm at the ocean with a cool drink, feeling those breezes!


supplies: Hero Arts Pool layering paper, ivory cardstock, Doodlebug Designs tangerine dot paper, Hero Arts CG 335 Dot Flower Pattern, CL495 Blossom Art, CL496 Layered Flowers, CL380 Truly Appreciated, Hero Hues Splash chalk ink, Memories Artprint Brown ink, Hero Arts Frame Cut CI003 Classic Frame, We R Memory Keepers turquoise fancy floss, brown button, tiny aqua buttons

I'm entering this card into Stamp It! Cards Hello Challenge at Moxie Fab World.  I really like how it turned out, using these complementary colors together.

Hi Lin! Beautiful card! Love the polka dot flowers and button centers! Such a happy cheerful card. Thanks for visiting my blog, and no, I didn't actually break my die. I meant to say I broke it in. Oops! My husband just told me that I made a typo. Thank goodness he reads my blog. I wouldn't want people to think that Papertrey Ink makes cheap products! Have a great day!

Gorgeous card and colors Lin! I will imagine that cool drink right along with you.

What a fabulous color combo...this card is a beaut! I wish I could say we were having normal SoCal sunny summer weather but it's almost 2pm and the temp is 67 degrees. We are really having a mild summer so far, so sorry the rest of the country is sweating it out. I'm sure it's cool in your craft room, so I suggest making more lovelies like this one! Hugs~

Very pretty! Tranquil and calming, it does remind me of being at the beach. It is miserable hot here in NC, too, and I wish I was at the beach in Florida.

Colleen Dietrich said...

You've transported me poolside, with these summery colors and tropical flowers. I love it!

Dawn T said...

simply gorgeous Lin. I love the summery look to this card and as I sit here freezing my butt off in less than 40F, I'm thinking of you all enjoying the heat. Take care
