This is the Life

Here is a simple one layer card using the Labels 4 Nestabilities to "frame" the focal image. I used the palm tree image from the Soakin' Up the Sun set from Paper Pretties. The coloring didn't turn out quite the way I wanted because I used my Bermuda Bay Stampin' Up marker for the center of the palm tree and it didn't blend very well with the base Copic marker color. I was afraid to keep coloring for fear of ruining the whole card. LOL I embossed the front of the card with the Labels 4 Nestabilities and then I kept the die in place while I sponged Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede around the inside. I finished off the card with some Bermuda Bay polka dot ribbon.
