Last night, we had a major thunderstorm come though the valley. Lots of rain and today it is cooler but sticky...I started to think about the tropical islands. Instead of saying "Hello" I thought I would use "Aloha" instead and use some bright colors. I have this paper for years and today it was perfect for my tropical theme. The sketch is this month's Mojo Monday #396 Contest.  

I wanted to really focus on the colorful paper so I used it on the inner rectangle too. The circle is from Spellbinders,  Splendid Circles and all the rest of the diecuts are from Cheery Lynn Designs. I used Fishtail Banners, Tropical Flourish, Gardenia Strip, and a new release Scandinavian Tag 2 that was the perfect diecut size to place above and below my title. 

A closer view...I made the red flower because I didn't have the exact size or bright red flower that I wanted to use today. I also added little lines with a black marker to match the paper. A placed a small pearl in the center. The other teal/blue flowers were part of my big bag of flowers that I bought at the scrapbook rummage sale. :)

The fabulous sketch for this month's contest! I recently ordered some sequins and stamps from the Verve store....can't wait for the arrival! 
Thank you! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! 
Hugs Lisa

This card is absolutely gorgeous. The rich colors come together beautifully. What a great piece to say, "Hello" or "Aloha" to someone and remind him/her that you are thinking of them. Its a keeper.
