Aloha ~ A Birthday Card

Hi Everyone!
Today I have a birthday card to share with you.

saturated canary digi

The image is called Aloha. I have colored her with Distress Ink pads.

I used my Frantage embossing powders for the 1st time. 
Not quite used to heat emboss from underneath; 
I need to practice more to get a hang of it.

 I made this little picture frame using air dry clay and Martha Stewart mold.
The sentiment is an old one from Stampin'Up.
The little turtle is a Memory Box die cut. I dry embossed the cut out 
turtle shell and dusted with chalk ink and glitter glue.

Dies used are Go Kreate, Spellbinder, Magnilia, and Memory Box.
DPs are from my stash, I bought these papers few years ago from
Island Paparie when vacationing in Maui, Hawaii.


The following items are available at The Ribbon Girl Shop:
3mm Aqua bead string, ivory button twine, heart with flower charm,
seam binding ribbon (colored with DI), Elizabeth cluny lace,
50mm Emily embroidered tulle lace,
small pale lilac gardenia flower, white K&G chrysanth.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!


I wish to enter this card in the following challenges:
