Back to my crafty space

Hi everyone. It feels so good to be back in my crafty space.  The ideas just seem to flow better here.  I miss my Dad, the two fuzzy ones and the lovely dry air, but this is now home for me.

Today, I have a card for several challenges.  I have been itching to play with this stamp set from Close to my Heart for a while.  It is called Hawaiian Hibiscus, the set includes two views of the Hibiscus, two sentiments, a leaf and two smaller flowers...maybe ginger blossoms.

I am using the Sketch from Cas(e) this sketch # 178, the colors are from the image at Inspired by All the Little things #21.


I cut most of the image panel along straight lines, the bottom and right lower area are fussy cut along the sentiment and flower petals. I embossed the card base with elegant dots from Stampin Up.  This card is going to male friends of mine who used to live in Hawaii...so I can get away with the flower, but no extra embellishments.  The main panel is adhered with foam tape.

I am also submitting this to  Anything goes Wednesday challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
