Aloha, my friends!
I am playing along with the AEI{heart}U Challenge over at Avery Elle Blog today!

Challenge 27

Here is my take...!

I know!! I finally got the pineapple sets from Avery Elle! EEEK!!
Is this fun or what!!? I think I am loving this card a bit too much...hee hee ;-)

I buy fresh pineapple every other week, I like to get a really green one and let it ripe on my kitchen counter. I have one that's not ready to eat yet, but the colors were so pretty with yellow and green! So that's how I colored my hula dancing pineapple after heat embossing with gold. The grass skirt was made with the fringe die, easy!

The sentiment, which came with the pineapple die, and the hibiscus were watercolored in Calypso Coral on the watercolor paper first then die cut/punched out. I love how my ombre turned out! I embossed vellum then stitched it on my base, but before I closed it up, I thought I would add some sequins. I love it!
