I wanted to play with some of the new dies that were just released (available in the NND store right now!!) - I added color to the Hibiscus die by ink blending with Lawn Fawn inks, and I stamped the pineapple from Pineapple Delight with several shades of ink using the rock-n-roll technique.   
To create my tropical scene,  I used the Garden Window die to cut a white oval, black rectangle and yellow rectangle.   I layered all three pieces in the center of my white cardstock base and stamped the sentiment in the upper right hand corner of the oval and heat embossed it with black powder.

I added my die cut pieces, mounting some directly to the oval and using foam tape for dimension on other pieces.  I love how fun and tropical this turned out!   Ahhhh.....time for a vacation, I think!    All the tropical goodness we've seen this week has me longing for a beach vacation.....Hawaii sounds good! ;)
