Heart Desires Challenge #2

The second The Heart Desires Challenge starts today--woo hoo!  I cannot wait to see what fabulous creations you link up--sinceriously!  Notice this time there's a sketch you can use it you like.  I sorta but not really did!

For my card I sponged Distress Inks with a stencil to create a tropical mood.  Then I layered washi on cardstock and diecut it out in order to create the graphic frame--oh, how I love this!  My idea had been to create a pineapple wreath but it seemed too floaty so black and white to ground it . . . a LOT. I stamped and diecut the pineapple and multiple green stems with ombre--cool effect, zero effort. Layering the leaves at the bottom allows the welcome sentiment to pop and the little pink flower draws the eye there too, doncha think?

So there you have it.  Now come on over and join in the fun!!!

The Details:
 Concord and 9th Pop Art Pineapple Stamps and DiesDoodlebug Striped WashiHero Arts Neon Yellow to Orange and Lime to Forever Green Ombre), VersaFine Onyx Black, Waffle Flower Flower Circles Inverted, Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron, Tim Holtz Blossom stencil
