Aloha to a Tropical Birthday Card

Aloha everyone!

Another Friday night stamping, and another birthday card to share! I never realized until now that three of my very closest friends have birthdays within a month of each other. May and June are great months! Tomorrow I'll be heading to a luau-themed birthday party, so I thought I'd make a card to reflect that island spirit. (By the way, I could so go for a Hawaiian vacation about now!)

I haven't used the the Tropical Dreams stamps by DeNami in a long time, and it was fun to pull them back out and play around. I also played around with a color scheme I don't normally use, so this card was really a nice change of pace.

 I encourage you all to bring out some of YOUR "vintage" stamps and give them new life (or at least the light of day!). You never know what you may rediscover!
