Good Luck! Have FUN!

This week's challenge them came a perfect time! I had the 'Summer Attitude' printed and ready to ink when the tragedy on Maui occurred. I created this sentiment in Word and adhered with with tape. The meaning in Hawaiian translates to: Maui-take good care of yourself.

I started with an A6 sized card base (4.5x6.25in.) and adhered this very subtle design paper that reminded me of tree bark.

With my 'old school Cricket' and cartridges, I dug out the "Life is a Beach", and from white cardstock cutout a Hibiscus boarder.

I used COPICS to color and Wink of Stella to highlight and adhered to my card with foam tape.

I also created the waves from the same Cricket cartridge. Using the wave image & layer. I then inked them with distress ink in Chipped Sapphire & Tumbled Glass.

I fussy cut the focal image and adhered her with foam tape -so lots of great layers to this card.

You can't see in the photos, but I also added a little bit of glossy accents to the hibiscus flower in her hair. I thought about adding it to the surf board, but didn't want to get to carried away or make the board too much of a focus.

I love that you clicked in and I hope you are inspired by my card and will join the Paper Shelter Blog Challenge!

I also hope you will find out where & how you can donate to the Maui Community.

What a beautiful gesture Tia! I love that you used your old Cricut and cartridges for this. I still have mine too, with a cupboard full of cartridges. I love your Hibiscus border!

Thanks Linda! I found a new space for my Cricut and find that now I'm using it again! Blow the dust off and find an excuse to fall in love with it again! LOL!
