Ornate Bloom

Aloha from the Big Island!  We're here for a couple more days before having to head back home :(.  I managed to find a little bit of time today to play, and this is what I came up with.  A pretty simple card, and the only stamping on it is the sentiment.  I actually had to do a little bit of fixup on it, as I tried to paper pierce a row under the sentiment, and the plastic guide from the mat pack slipped and my line was VERY crooked.  So, I added the thin Chocolate and Pumpkin strips on the bottom where I messed up.  I think the little bit of Pumpkin there really works, so maybe I really didn't mess up at all!  Anyway, here it is:

Ended up watching a young turtle for a good half hour or so this afternoon.  He/she found a nice clump of vegetation along the rocks out front and was having him/herself some dinner.  Hoped to get a shot of him/her with his/her head up, but I just wasn't fast enough.  Here he/she is:

Thanks for stopping by!

This card is very pretty. Don't you just love "happy accidents"? Sometimes they lead to the best results!
