Aloha in Colour!

Well, I hope you are having a fab weekend! Staying quite busy here and finding it hard to get some crafting time done, so I put this together very quickly very late last night snapped the shot before we left today, and now I am trying to get this blogged and loaded before we are on the go again.

This little bit of Aloha is for the ColourQ challenge. You can find the colors and inspiration below.

Since I still had my handy dandy Storybook Cartridge in from my last project I created another label using Cosmo Cricket pattern paper and snipped the top off to be well different! ha. I love this cartridge. What is not showing up is I embossed my Stampin' Up! Whisper White layer with my textured plate from the Stampin Backgrounds 1. Urgh! It adds so much to this card. 

The Hibiscus is layered with Bashful Blue. I think I had just enough to complete these projects, and now I am out unless I can scramble some more scraps. 

Hope the rest of your weekend is wonderful!

Such a pretty card, and even better close up. The detail in that flower is amazing, and love how you've popped it up on blue.
