Cute Card Thursday #159 - Totally Tropical

Happy Thursday!

Our challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is Totally Tropical. Here is my Tropical card...

Stamps: Surfing Edwin, Just Beachy (SU!),
Paper: Citrus (DCWV)
Accessories: Shells, Buttons, Ribbon, Ocean of Words Cricut Cartridge

 I was trying to give the feeling of an early morning sunrise on a foggy beach, so the character is backlit with the shadow falling in front of him.

I wanted to add a little something to the button, so I create a spiral with a left over piece of ribbon.

I used my Ocean of Words Cricut cartridge to create some palm trees. I like how these little trees help to create depth in the picture.

I am entering this in the Make It Colourful Bright Colors Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!
