Hawaiian Challenge

I love my friends and I love a challenge.  And apparently my friends love to challenge me! Lol  The latest challenge came when a friend asked me to make a Hawaiian themed card.

I have no stamps or dies on that theme so I lost lots of time on Pinterest and eventually found a punch art Hula girl that inspired this card..

Peekaboo Peach and Berry Burst seemed a good Hawaiian colour combination and thankfully Picture Perfect Party designer series paper had the perfect design for the background of my card.

I genuinely couldn’t tell you what combination of punches and layering circle dies I used in the end.  My desk was a disaster zone while I tried various combinations until I was happy with the result.  There are some non- Stampin’ Up! products in there and the flowers are from a retired punch.

The balloons and Happy Birthday sentiment are from Happy Birthday Gorgeous.

I have to say I’m rather fond of my Hula girl and I believe the lucky 9 year old birthday girl loved her card – phew!  Mission accomplished, ha ha.

I’ve listed some of the products used in this card below.  If you’d like to visit my Stampin’ Up! shop then just click on one of the products below.

I’d love to hear your comments on how I measured up to the challenge with this card.

Happy crafting,
