Tiki Party

Good Day!

I made this card for my neighbor. I was looking for something fun. The tiki head was an image I downloaded from the internet, traced and cut using the silhouette. The drink was a cricut cut form Life's a Beach cartridge.

The background I printed on my printer. I've learned to use a glossy cardstock and the print is much nicer. The stamp is from Just-Rite and the scallop is a SU punch. 
To go along with the card I bought an orchid plant...guess I didn't show how pretty
it was. lol
The dragonfly was purchased from the silhouette library as were all the vinyl cuts.
This machine cuts vinyl great. Intricate designs are not a problem. My only problem is I want to vinyl everything.
I did have a label image but I was able to draw a oval to match the inside of the label for the blue vinyl. I am using the designer edition software and that allows me more creativity. Probably way more than I'll ever need. The swirly font was pretty cute too.

Well I just couldn't leave this side without anything so I duplicated the dragonfly and then I had a font that has a little flower on each letter. Perfect...and in the centre of each flower I added a black pearl.
Had a productive day yesterday in my craftroom and I also visited with a friend where
we exchanged craft ideas. I've got a cool one coming up for you.
DH is in Calgary right now...coming home today but boy have they been in the deep freeze. Saturday's forecast was -30C for high and -46C for low. That's cold.
Leave a comment and let me know where your from and how warm or cold you are!
If you're still in winter temperatures stay warm and just makes it more bearable.
