Challenge Up Your Life #125 - Vacation Mood

Hi all!

I'm super excited to be Guest Designer this month for Challenge Up Your Life where the theme is Vacation Mood.

For this card I started with the waves which I cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I blended Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon to give them some color.

Next I used the circle die from Altenew's Gradient Sunset and did some partial die cutting as I didn't want the whole circle to be cut.

To create the background I blended Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Festive Berries and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide inks.

I assembled the card and stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black. I also stamped the palm tree with the same ink and used the coordinating die to cut it out.
To create some dimension I used foam squares to adhere the tree to the card.
