Aloha!



Hello everyone! Here is a card that I did for a couple of challenges. When I first got my Cricut, I just HAD to have Life's A Beach and have always wanted to cut out this hula girl. Well I FINALLY did it! LOL! So here's what I came up with.
All of the cricut cuts are from Life's A Beach. I stamped the girls face with a PK face stamp and used my I-Rock to attach the gems to her. The center on the big flower is a brad. I cut the surf board in 2 layers and trimmed around to get the inside piece. The sand dollars were cut and inked. I tore strips of paper for the sand and ocean and stamped the cloud background. The banner I stamped using My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags set. First I stamped the solid color and then the stitching stamp over the top. I cut the letters from LAB, glued it to the banner and added some twine.
SUPPLIES
My Craft Spot- Tiny Tags Stamps, Chocolate Truffle Twine (PS- YOU CAN GET A STAMP SET FROM MY CRAFT SPOT FOR 1 PENNY THIS WEEK! CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT HOW!)
Peachy Keen- Cherub Face Assortment and Clouds Background

I am going to enter this into the following challenges
