Aloha Friday



Using Amber's great sketch for the Viva la Verve challenge, I created a tropical setting to meet the requirements of the Free 4 All challenge on SCS. Wendy challenged us to honor our island friends (who dress casually for Aloha Friday), so I knew my "go to" sets would be Verve's Relax (palm tree) & Text Objects (ship & sentiment). The rhinestones are orange but for some reason, they show up brown in the photo. The ship was paper-pieced with Destination Paradise DP by Me & My Big Ideas. The tree was stamped with Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip (colored with Copic E55). The white panel was embossed with the large dots EF and I just had to use my new MFT Die-namic wave die for the border. TGIF and I have the next 6 days off work - woohoo!
