Think "Tropical"...

What do you get after you see the following...
 
(My house in DEEP FREEZE...)
 this yummy souvenir from Miami
 
& picturesque Curacao

what do you get?
THIS CARD!

I simply can't resist making ANOTHER card from the stamp Row of Houses. My house actually looks like the blue one in the card! I literally "built the houses" one at a time. Some of the houses were stamped tone on tone to achieve the colorful effect, then cut out and glued. I highlighted the pink house with Glossy Accent and added a heart gem. This card is made for someone special who likes Pink, Buttons and Twine....and she just moved into a new house of her own recently. And yes, she lives in England!
CL380 Truly Appreciated , H5328 Row of HousesOthers: Fiskar lace punch, ribbons, twine, CB (Swiss Dot), Glossy Accent
Thanks for stopping by :)
