Double D Tropical

Tropical palm trees, tropical flowers,tropical birds,  and tropical fruit. Can you guess the theme for this Double D Challenge Blog?



I was really struggling with this challenge.  I have palm tree stamps, and dies, but I have used them so often I could not think of a new idea. I was not sure what I was going to do until I remembered a friend of mine gifted me with a set of tropical flower dies from Stampin Up. Thanks Barb!!! 



A left over die cut from a prievous challenge and some water colored paper backgrounds were in a basket on my desk so I decided to use them and add the tropical flowers and leaves. 

The water color background looks muted in the photo, but IRL it is very shiny and full of gold highlights.

So look at the mood board and the go look at all the inspiration from the team at  Double D Challenge Blog.  If you play along, you will have a chance to win this prize.

  2. Yeah! Both you and Judy used this die and make it tropical. So glad that I could help in a small way. You have a way of grouping flowers so that they really "POP" on a card.
