A card for my Sister-in-Law

Hello! This is the first of two posts I have to share with you today. This card I made for my sister-in-law who, like all of us, can use some encouragement from time to time. She lives in Houston and works all over Texas, but is a California girl at heart. I received my Taylored Expressions April key ingredients kit and this new adorable stamp set - cuppie beach bum - just the other day and I could not wait to dive into it. I did have the dry embossing challenge in mind from little red wagon, but I missed the deadline. I cut the tropical flowers out of a piece of the material girl dp and bent up the petals a bit to give them a bit of a 3-d effect. I cased my BFF, Cassie's card in paper piecing the surfer cuppie's "board shorts". She has done some awesome things with this stamp set and kit.
Thanks for stopping by!
