Tropical heat ....

.... Good afternoon! It's a wonderfully hot, sunny day here in Northville. We're heading for tropical temperatures and humidity in the coming week! So obviously my card has a tropical feel. I'm here, albeit very late, with my DT card for the current challenge at Cupcake Inspirations - CIC#367 where the theme is tropical.

Stamps: Your Next Stamp - Jungle Critters
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black, Grey Flannel; Stampin' Up! - Cajun Craze; Versafine - Onyx Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SUDP - Botanical Gardens; Copics

I've used the sketch from the current Your Next Stamp Challenge - YNS#43 and the theme over at City Crafter Challenge Blog - CCCB#321 is tropical, so I'm playing along with them too.

I cut a panel of design paper with lovely tropical leaves for the side of the card. In the corner I stamped a plantation of coconut palms in grey ink. On white card I stamped another palm tree and the parrot (I've decided he's a parrot) and coloured them both with Copic markers. I made the palm trunk slightly longer by drawing in some extra lines. I adhered both the palm and parrot with dimensional gel. I finished the front with a sentiment and some hearts. The inside hasn't been done yet.

Our sponsor this week is Your Next Stamp and the randomly picked winner of this week's challenge, will receive a $25 gift voucher from them.

I'm still working hard to get back into my normal routine, but failing!! So I have to apologise to my team mate over at Cupcake Inspirations for being so late with my card. I'll do better - promise! That's all for now.
