Mele Kalikimaka

  For National Scrapbook Day I won Echo Park's "Paradise Beach" collection.  I have been eager to cut into it, and today I had the *perfect* opportunity!

  My dear friend, Lauren Bergold (...all the good blog names were taken...), has made several tropical-themed cards that inspire me.  Lauren also has a challenge blog with the lovely Stef (aka Smylin' Stef) called Jingle Belles Rock.  Lauren set the challenge this week:  Mele Kalikimaka (now you will be singing that in your head all day; you're welcome!)

  All I needed was a great sketch, and I found one at the Paper Players:
  I am a fan of Nance and Lesley's creations at the Paper Players.  This is a Lesley sketch...thanks for the inspiration, Lesley!

  I embossed the Echo Park paper and added some Imaginisce gems and a My Pink Stamper "Biggie Christmas" sentiment.  Easy peasy.

Happy Monday!

What a great card, June! I have been totally stumped on the Mele Kalikimaka theme, maybe because I didn't even know there was a song ;) Thanks for the new inspiration!
