island paper challenge

Morning! Yeah, I know...I said I wasn't going to post today but this will just be really quick. Ready? Okay...

I saw on Paper Craft Planet an Inspiration Challenge given by Island Paperie. Now, I don't normally do inspiration challenges as I don't really feel that I do well with them but I have some paper that I got from my friend (Hi Pammella!) while I was in Honolulu and just had to use one of them. I'm hoping that the flower in the corner will make this card at least a little bit like the beautiful paper from Island Paperie.

The base is PTI White with some Riding Hood Red, the patterned paper is from Karen Foster. I cut the flower from the patterned paper and popped it up on dimensionals. The image and inside sentiment are from Stamp Oasis that I got from Rubbernecker Stamps. I thought maybe the bird/leaf Cuttlebug folder would go well with this and I do like it. I colored this beautiful hula girl with my COPIC markers, added some ribbon and I stopped there. Well, except for the inside which is pretty self explanatory.

I hope you like this and are having a fantastic Saturday!
