Tropical Bouquet

Used Life's A Beach cart for waves, sun, Bird of Paradise and Plumeria and EDPD for fishbowl...  (I just love using that fish bowl for flowers..) 1 sheet of K and Co PP, embossed w/CB Frills Border Folder and Tiny Bubbles folder, a couple of Recollections eyelets, some BasicGrey Bling and a touch of Glossy Accents for this warm summery greeting which follows a sketch by BasicGrey Challenges  and incorporates the following characteristics which fall in with these challenges:

Magical Crafts - metal madness
One Stitch at a Time - something new
The Pink Elephant - gotta wear shades
Cupcake Craft - summer delights
Crafty Cardmakers - fave and least fave color (least = yellow and fave = pink)
Papertake - fun fun fun
Tuesday Taggers - touchy feely texture
Charisma - flowers
PaperPlay - flowers and sparkle galore
Meljens Designs - dry embossing
Busy Beauties - anything goes
