May Day is lei day in Hawaii, so the challenge at Raise the Bar is to create a card using a Hawaiian or tropical image or theme. I thought this Island Oasis DP from SU would be perfect for a background for these Verve images! I went a little crazy with all the vivid colors, so you'll need your shades for this card! For more inspiration from the other bartenders, head on over to the Raise the Bar blog! We hope you can join us...can't wait to see what you create!

This is also for Chupa's Case Study Challenge where we're to CASE this gorgeous card by Laurie Schmidlin.
