Tropical Party

This was such a fun card to make.  The ladies had fun with it as well at stamp camp.  Instead of using the In a Word stamp set for the sentiment, they used the sentiment "and many more" from Party Hearty set.  What a riot!

The base of the card uses tempting turquoise, accented with pumpkin pie that is run through the new square lattice impressions folder.  I love the look, almost like burlap.  The umbrellas are from the new designer series paper called Island Oasis.  And, of course, the main stamp is from the Tropical Party set, then glittered with Dazzling Diamonds.  In making the sample, I accidentally put the image into embossing powder instead of dazzling diamonds.  Oops ... but I embossed it anyway, and it really turned out pretty cool.  It gave it a different look.  Give it a try, and see which look you like better.
