AMuse Swap

Another Amuse Swap I joined. I was quite thrilled with the way this card turned out. I had seen the "sand" idea on another blog...I apologize that I can't remember who's right now.

Stamps: AMuse
Cardstock: Vellum, Whisper White, Sahara Sand
Inks: Black Staz On, Yo Yo Yellow, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Gold Brads, Corkboard, Lumiere, Pearl-Ex
You can't really tell in the picture but I colored the palm tree leaves with lumiere and Pearl-Ex, the base of the tree with a SU! Marker. The sun was made by cutting a square and then punching the "sun" shape out of it with a circle punch. I used this as my template when I sponged on the color.
