Citrus Aloha

Here is a super simple "Aloha" card I made with the appropriately named "Citrus" DP! Love the glitter on this and great matches for Pure Luxury colors in this DCWV pack. I colored the toucan with Copics and then cropped it with a circle die, then layered onto the DP and Red Hot base. Those showy flourishes on the paper complement the bird and prevent the need for a complicated sketch!


Anyone gone or going on some exotic vacation this summer? We head for Disneyworld in less than two weeks, so excited!

Hope you had a great weekend and a wonderful week ahead!

Hey, Mel! while you are enjoying Disney pick up some postcards for young warriors battling cancer. Email mt23stamperatyahoodotcom for specifics and repay. Thank you! The kids thank you with total amazement realizing networks of people uplift them before the Throne of Grace and make additional time to snail mail them. (This is in addition to CARDS4KIDS at Valentine's Day and other calendar holidays.)
Keep Looking UP!
