Awwwww the Tropics (0=

Good Morning!
This card reminds me of the tropics! Must be the colors! There is no stamping on this card... just played with paper! My card base is pacific point layered with whisper white and beyond the garden dp. I used my bird punch to create the vine and add a little dimension!

This paper is just so pretty I couldn't cover it up! I will stamp a sentiment on the inside when I decide who will receive it! I've really been stuck on pacific point lately..... don't know why LOL! That's it for me today... it's my Monday need to get ready for work!
