Tropical Beauty

Good morning blog friends, I'm back with another card to share with you. This is a totally summery one, hot tropical colors to ward off the rainy day blues I've been having for the past week! Rain, rain and more rain. The sun would come out for half a day, and then guess what? More rain... sheesh!
I was reminiscing about my trip to the Bahamas many, many moons ago and the gorgeous Hibiscus shrubs that grew absolutely everywhere. You think the flowers you see on Hibiscus plants in the gardens here are big? In the Bahamas they are the size of dinner plates! So, so beautiful. I ran across this digi from Floppy Latte Designs a while back and had to color it up. 

I just used my colored pencils to color this one in, cut out one flower and popped it up for some added dimension. 

I think I've had this paper for going on 3 years, a whole big book of Amy Butler patterns, and hardly ever use it. But, just so happens, it was perfect for this tropical themed card! THAT is why I never get rid of anything, lol!

Hope it warms up your day a bit, thanks for visiting and the lovely comments!
