Good Morning all,
It's Sunday and another beautiful day here. I got into my stamping room early this morning to check out what Karen had in store for us with this week's sketch. As always, another goodie. I haven't used a large oval on a card for quite awhile, and I had some fun with this one.
Once the paper colors were chosen, I decided I wanted the kraft paper to have a "thatched" look, to give it that island feel. I came up with using the lattice embossing folder. I think it worked pretty well. I also used SU crystal effects to make the surf board look shinny, since they really are. All in all, I think it came together very well. So, enjoy a "trip" to the islands with Kona.
This card for my brother who has had some health issues in the recent months. He'll get a kick out of this cute little guy saying "Hi," as he likes all things Hawaiian.
