Paradise


My card was inspired by that runway dress (see picture below) which was from another SCS VSN challenge this past weekend!
I immediately thought of "a Rainbow in Paradise" when I saw it.... Sooo, off to work I went and used several embellishments to dress up my non-stamped card that has rhinestones, gold trimmed ribbon, stickles, and a charm of cute sunglasses.
The tropical birds and flowers are actually all taken from one sheet of stickers that I paper pieced together and layered onto layers of cardstock for dimension to create this paradise scene. Lots of cutting, but I liked the look. The background is a piece taken from an actual Hawaiian rainbow taken from one of my keepsake calendars (from month of March) that Ive been holding on to since the time we lived in Hawaii during 2003-2005.
Awww, I was totally reminiscing back to those days while making this card and it made me sad to have left such a bright happy beautiful sunny place. Now I live in cloudy, rainy Seattle!! I shouldnt complain though 'cuz its really beautiful here too .... just not sunny! lol.
