A Quick and Easy Birthday Card

I made this card for my mother in law's birthday. She has palm trees and tropical colors all over her apartment, so this card is very appropriate.

I didn't use many embellishments, the paper was just too pretty to cover up. This is a 4.5 x 6.5 photo mat from the DCWV Travel Stack.


Details:
Patterned paper - DCWV Travel Stack
Stamps: Hawaiian Tilda, Inkadinkado Sentiment
Misc: Adhesive rhinestones, Distress Inks, Liquid Pearls, Stickles

Challenges:
1. Tuesday Throwdown - trees and nature
2. Just Magnolia - hot and spicy
3. Pile it on - eat your veggies (veggie colors)
4. Magnolia Stamp Lovers - summer theme
5. The Pink Elephant - gotta wear shades
6. Stampavie and more - summer
7. Cupcake Craft - summer
