Hula Days Previews: Day 2

Good morning! Thanks for surfing back over to my little island. Today is our second day of Previews at InStyle Stamps, and we have my favorite image for you today who is Leila. I actually combined her with yesterdays preview image, Island Sun (the tree).

This card is also for 2 challenges this week. I used the sketch from The Diedrich Dare for my layout and used a wee bit o Green from the Copic Creations Challenge.

Leila and the tree were both cut out after I colored them. The tree is adhered straight to the panel and Leila is popped up. I have a side view below so that you can see the dimensionality of the card. For this card I got to pull out my brand spankin new Jumbo Rectangle Nesties from Spellbinders...Hot dang! Love them!!

I dotted around the edges a bit and then layered the panel onto more of the same fun paper that I had used for the rectangles...its by My Minds Eye, from a collection last summer called Breakin' Free. I thought the colors were just perfect!

OK, so don't forget to surf on over to the ISS blog from here to enter for all of the awesome giveaways this week! also Virginia will have the links to all the other DT who have sneaky peekys for you today!

Thanks for coming by! Have a great afternoon :) Aloha!
