for todays color challenge: buckaroo blue, morning marigold, chocolate chip. The yellow strip is pierced from the backside. I used a round stamp from the Balmy Breezes set, punched out, used the shadow stamps from Riveting and added a large copper brad. When I was done I thought it looked like a camera, LOL, not what I had intended. So now I guess it can be a cherish the memories kind of card! Too bad a don't have a tropical vacation memory of my own to go with it.

I did not notice the similarity to a camera-but this is a picture perfect card - LOL. Really, I just love this card. Great piercing -I just can't get the piercing thing going - but I sure do love viewing those that can. Fabulous bg using the rough wheel texture - helps to set the tropical sensation of the card. I always enjoy viewing your work.
