Thinking of Paradise...

Hi friends!  Kendra here today I have a card to share with you that makes me think of being in paradise.

I started off with a kraft card base and stamped the Tree Silhouette image around the edges using Antique Linen Distressed Ink for a tone on tone look.  Then on the card panel, I stamped the lined image from the Background Basics 2 stamp set in a criss-cross pattern as the background in Distressed ink.  The main image is the Large Palms and I inked it using my Rich Cocoa & Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink.  And then added a sentiment from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set in Rich Cocoa Ink. 

The final touches on the card are a green cardstock layer, a pattern paper scalloped border and then I wrapped the panel with twine and added a button.  I popped up the card panel with Kool Tac Foam Dots.
