Curtain Call - Tropical Trip

The inspiration at Curtain Call this time is Tropical Trip.  This was a fun card to make.  My husband and I have been fortunate to take one dream trip to Alaska, and now the next dream trip will be to Hawaii. 

 Here is my card:

I received the Toucan stamp in a grab bag at Gina K. Designs.  It is from a set called Aloha.  This is the first time that it has seen ink, so I was very happy to get to use it.  I paired him up with some tropical paper from The Paper Studio.  He was getting lost in all of that color, so I added a piece of Vellum to soften the colors. The picture die is from Lil' Inkers.  I added an embossed panel and some gingham ribbon.  Thanks so much for coming by to look!

The Recipe:
GKD Aloha, Stately Flowers 4 (Hawaii), Make a "State"ment (Wish I were in.....)
The Paper Studio patterned paper
Lil' Inkers Instant Camera die
Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangles
Cuttlebug Tropic Bloom EF
Offray Gingham Ribbon
