Hawaii Dreaming

Have you been dreaming of warmer places lately? I know I have. Winter seems like it's been hanging around just a little bit too long. I'm anxious to sit outside and see some greenery again!! Aren't you? I guess I will have to satisfy myself with a daydream today... let me take you on a trip to Hawaii!! Everything I'm using today is from the Let's Go! Travel Collection. This is Leilani our Hula Girl! She's a printed die cut - ready to use. You can write words on the little sign in her hand - I just added a heart gem. I was thinking this might be a nice anniversary card, or just a note to remind Mr. J. that it's time for a vacation - that we need to go make some memories!
I wanted the pattern paper to peek through the letter openings in the word "memories" but when I layered it on the newsprint background it sort of faded away. The Travel Stencil Cards are all cut from white card stock. To make the word stand out more I colored it up with Copic markers. Distress ink would also work great for this. I tried to use the same color blue as the other items on the card to draw your eye.
I stamped "Aloha" on a Navigator Note Flag. They're available on a printed sheet that you can cut by hand, or if you are looking for a short cut like me, they also come in a package precut. They come in a package with lots of different colors - perfect for mixing and matching with different paper collections. I love my bling, and really this one didn't need much.... just the heart gem and one little seashell sequin from the Paradise Confetti package. The different confetti blends have a great assortment of little embellishments for you to pick through.
I adhered the die cut Leilani with adhesive foam tape to add a little dimension to the card.

Ready for a vacation yet? LOL! Don't worry! Spring's on it's way. In the meantime you can always take a day dream get away !

I'm ready to pack my bags and head off to a tropical paradise! Your card, with the darling Hula girl, sure adds incentive for doing so. We don't have much snow left any more, but the cool temperatures, grayness, and all around 'betwixt and between' Spring and Winter, has me well ready for some bursts of colour. Hopefully, we'll see the buds of leaves soon...
